Clancy Lowered The Boom

Melody -

1. Now Clancy was a peaceful man,
If you know what I mean.
The cops picked up the pieces
After Clancy left the scene.
He never looked for trouble,
That's a fact you can assume.
But never-the-less,
When trouble would press,
Clancy lowered the boom!

2. O'Leary was a fighting man,
They all knew he was tough.
He strutted 'round the neighborhood,
A-shootin' off his guff.
He picked a fight with Clancy,
Then and there he sealed his doom.
Before you could shout
"O'Leary, look out!"
Clancy lowered the boom!

3. Clancy left the barber shop
With tonic on his hair,
He walked into the pool room
And he met O'Reilly there.
O'Reilly said "For goodness sakes,
Now do I smell perfume?"
Before you could stack
Your cue in the rack,
Clancy lowered the boom!
  4. Mulrooney walked into the bar
And ordered up a round.
He left his drink to telephone,
And Clancy drank it down.
Mulrooney said "Who drunk me drink?
I'll lay him in his tomb!"
Before you could pat
The top of your hat,
Clancy lowered the boom!

5. O'Houlihan delivered ice
To Misses Clancy's flat.
He'd always linger for a while,
To talk of this and that.
One day he kissed her
Just as Clancy walked into the room.
Before you could say
The time of day,
Clancy lowered the boom!

6. The neighbors all turned out
For Kate O'Grady's weddin' night.
McDoogle said "Let's have some fun
I think I'll start a fight!"
He wrecked the hall, then kissed the bride
And pulverized the groom.
Then quick as a wink,
Before you could think,
Clancy lowered the boom!

Oh, that Clancy! Oh, that Clancy!
Whenever they got his Irish up,
Clancy lowered the boom!
