Lyrics

Ah well there was a young woman in Derry she lived in the Brandywell
And her husband out on the batter and he used to give her hell
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

Ah well she searched the pubs in Waterloo Street found the one he was in
Says she good luck with the kids and the dog I’m going to do meself in
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

Well she went round to Great James‘ Street a doctor for to find
Dr. McDermott give him something I am going out of me mind
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

He gave her a bucket of tablets I wrote yous one to ten
And a holiday down in Buncrana you‘ll not feel too bad then
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

I think I’ll go and I’ll drown meself go up to the reservoir
Says he come round to Rossvile street and we’ll hire a peoples‘ car
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

Ah don‘t jump off Craigavon bridge you know you might be seen
With a scandal I could lose me place as captain of the darts team
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

Ah when they got to the water’s edge he went to shove her in
She bent down to buckle her shoe and he went tumblin‘ in
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

Throw a life belt in you fool I’m drowning he did say
Says she the wains from the Creggan love they‘ve stole the net away
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.

Well now me story’s ended and another woman free
And another Cassanova now who won’t be home for his tea
With me right finnickinario right finnick a wall
Right finnickinario we're tipping it up to Nancy.
