The Craic Was 90 In The Isle Of Man, lyrics and chords by Barney Rush.A song about women , portor ,fighting ,the craic and being deported all in the one weekend ,What a life .This was made famous by Paddy Reilly and Christy Moore, but the video is of The Dublin City Ramblers in their hay-day, Kevin Molloy doing the singing, A very fast song, not much time for gargle while singing this one. The sheet music notes are below.
 

[G]well weren't we the rare oul stock
spent the evenin' gettin' locked
up[D] in the ace o' hearts
where the[G] high stools were en[C]gaging
[G]over the butt bridge, down by the dock,
the boat she sailed at five o'clock.
[D]hurry boys now , said whack
or[G] before we're there we're[C] all be back
[D]carry him if you can
the[G] craic was ninety[D] in the isle of[G] man.

before we reached the alexander base
the ding dong we did surely raise
in the bar of the ship we had great sport
as the boat she sailed out of the port
landed up in the douglas head
enquired for a vacant bed
the dining room we soon got shown
by a decent woman up the road
lads, eat it if ye can
the craic was ninety in the isle of man.

next morning we went for a ramble round
viewed the sights of douglas town
then we went for a mighty seisiun
in a pub they call dick darbys.
we must have been drunk by half past three
to sober up we went swimmin' in the sea
back to the digs for the spruce up
and while waitin' for the fry
we all drew up our plan.
the craic was ninety in the isle of man.

that night we went to the texas bar,
came back down by horse and car
met big jim and all went in
to drink some wine in yales
the liverpool judies it was said
were all to be found in the douglas head.
mcshane was there in his suit and shirt.
them foreign girls he was tryin' to flirt.
sayin' here, girls, im your man
the craic was ninety in the isle of man.

whacker fancied his good looks
on an isle of man woman he was struck
and he throwin' the jar into her.
whacker thought he'd take a chance
he asked the quare one out to dance
around the floor they stepped it out
and to whack it was no bother
everythin' was goin' to plan.
the craic was ninety in the isle of man.

the isle of man woman fancied whack
yer man stood there till his mates came back
whack! they all whacked into whack
whack was landed on his back.
the police force arrived as well,
banjoed a couple of them as well
landed up in the douglas jail
until the dublin boat did sail,
deported every man.
the craic was ninety in the isle of man

Here is the sheet music and tin whistle notes for The Craic Was 90
