"The shillelagh that never missed fire."
As I was going along the road, I met a gentleman, sir, Good-morrow to you, sir, said I, but he proved a mighty toad, sir, For at the corner of a lane, he pulled a pistol out, sir, And clasps the muzzle-oh, what a shame!-up to my very throat, sir. / Your money, damn your Irish eyes-be merciful, cried I, sir, But he swore he'd blow out both my eyes, if I'd either stir or cry, sir, His pistol to my head did pop, two steps I did retire, The pan it flashed, and his weapon I smashed-shillelagh, you never missed fire! (Old Song to new Tune.)/
