Corbally wise and wiser grew
I think we'll put this club to stew
But it didn't stew nor boil
So i think we'll do without the soil.

There's one man yet we didn't touch
And where to place him we're troubled much
He always claims to be Fianna Fáil
But in this club he tried to sail
The water dried the club is sunk
And willy retires into his bunk
But in his bunk he means to stick
For he says they're all a combined clique
Old Fosyths land is all a strand
To break it 'twould be fooling
'Twould do no good but raise the tax
Says Mr Dinny Dooling
