On a barrack square they call Drumdoe,
a place well guarded too,
The soldiers sprang to arms for a hot night's rigadoo.
They took up their position guarding every land and pass,
Guns pointed at each object and especially an ass
Now in every hut and barrack square they have electric wires laid
To ring up the "Black and Tans" in case of time of raid
But this donkey being harmless,
meant no one to offend,
Got entangled in the ire and rang up all the men
Then the Tommies almost wild with fright and of raiders had their doubt
Thought it better call assistance before they'd turn out.
