Traditional's, "Roddy McCorley"
Misheard Lyrics:
With elastic on his feet, shining pipe in hand
A ram skin marched in Green Beret, as starlets heard his band
For a-rum-tum-toum, for a-rum-tum-toum, he led the tooth array
As young Roddy McCorley goes to dive under Bridget's tomb today.
Original Lyrics:
When he last stepped up the street, shining pike in hand
Around him marched, in grim array, a stalwart ernest band
For Antrim Town, for Antrim Town, he led them to the fray
As young Roddy McCorley goes to die on the Bridge of Toome today.
