[G]Now I'll tell you a [C]story that is [G]bound to [D]shock
It's [G]all about a murder on the Rings-end [D]Dock.
[G]woman in [C]question [G]Biddy Mac [D]Grath
who [G]strangled two sailors with the straps of her [D]bra
[G]with me [C]toor-i-aa, [G]fol-the-did-dle-ahh.
They tried to dope her with foreign liquor
But even at that they couldn't lick her
She remembered she was told
by her Ma and Da
To keep both of her hands on the straps of her bra.
She put the straps of her bra around the big fella's neck
And tossed him in the Liffy like a crust of bread
the small fella came up and said 'Hee-Haw'
So she stuffed his gob with the rest of her bra.
[G]She went home that night about a quarter to one
Happy and contented with a job well done
She told the story
to her Ma and her Da
They said 'Thank God that you wore your bra.'
Biddy had to go to Court the very next day
To face the charges that came he way;
Said the judge
"I find you guilty Miss Biddy McGrath
Your to hang from the gallows by the straps of your Bra".
Now come all you young girls who like a sailor by night
Never wear the straps of your bra too tight
the story of Biddy Mac Grath
-Keep both of your hands on the straps of your bra.
