lyrics

GALWAY HOOKER
by Patrick Marran

Well, she's waiting by the docks every morning
There’s a lot of other sailors lined to book her up
I’d gladly climb her mast
For the view up there is vast
See I'm in love with my Galway hooker

Every single man ought to have one
Maybe every married laddie needs one, too
On top of you I'm as happy as can be
Oh, Galway hooker, you're the one for me

Everybody loves a Galway Hooker
The week is long without a little fun
But, if you get a chance to climb
Then you’ll see that she’s sublime
It makes you want to go and share her with your son

Every single man ought to have one
Maybe every married laddie needs one, too
On top of you I'm as happy as can be
Oh, Galway hooker, you're the one for me

Some say that it’s a danger just to board her
With scurvy and sea sickness all about
But, she’s clean as ocean air
And below deck she is bare
That’s the reason all the sailors headed out

Every single man ought to have one
Maybe every married laddie needs one, too
On top of you I'm as happy as can be
Oh, Galway hooker you're the one for me

Well, maybe someday I’ll go back to dry land
Where my dear old wife, she’s waiting by the bay
But, our ship came early home
And I see she's found her own
So, now we’re riding both our hookers in the bay

Every single man ought to have one [YES!]
Maybe every married laddie needs one, too [WE DO!]
On top of you I'm as happy as can be
Oh, Galway hooker you're the one for me

Every single man ought to have one [YES!]
Maybe every married laddie needs one, too [WE DO!]
On top of you I'm as happy as can be
Oh, Galway hooker you're the one for me
