His wife she scolded and got in a passion.
The tinkers they laughed
As they hammered away
For they knew very well
He could not dispossess them
As long as their bill
They would continue to pay
It was for four days
They kept up constant hammering
The landlord he charged them
Upon the first day
Ten pounds but was glad
To bestow them one hundred
Before he could get the bold tinkers away.
Now since Daniel he first was elected.
The rights of old Ireland
He always maintained
Lt them never think to play tricks on
For they'll never play one
On O'Connell again.
