Preab San OL Song lyrics and guitar chords, a traditional song recorded by Luke Kelly and Ciaran Bourke. This is a duet where Luke sings a verse in English and Ciaran sings in Gaelige. I havn't got the Gaelige art of the song yet. This one is all about spending it while you have it, no point waiting until it's too late. The sheet music notes are included.

[D]Why spend your leisure bereft of [G]pleasure
 A massing [A]treasure why scrape and [D]save?
[D]Why look so canny at ev'ry [G]penny?
 You'll take no money[A] within the [D]grave
 Landlords and [A]gentry with all their [Em]plenty
 Must still go [D]empty where e'er they're [A]bound
 So to my [D]thinking we'd best be [G]drinking
 Our glasses [A]clinking and round and [D]round
 
[D]King Solomon's glory, so famed in [G]story
 Was far out[A]shone by the lillies [D]guise
 [D]But hard winds harden both field and [G]garden
 Pleading for [A]pardon, the lily [D]dies
Life's but a [A]bauble of toil and [Em]trouble
 The feathered [D]arrow, once shot ne'er [A]found
 So, lads and [D]lasses, because life [G]passes
 Come fill your [A]glasses for another [D]round
 
[D]The huckster greedy, he blinds the [G]needy
 Their strifes un[A]heeding, shouts "Money [D]down!"
 [D]This special vices, his fancy [G]prices
 For a florin [A]value he'll charge a [D]crown
 With hump for [A]tramel, the scripture's [Em]chamel
 Missed the [D]needle's eye and so came to [A]ground
 Why pine for[D] riches, while still you've [G]stitches
 To hold your [A]britches up Another [D]round!
