Poem: 
I
Grandfather sang it under the gallows:
" hear, gentlemen, ladies, and all mankind:
money is good and a girl might be better.
But good strong blows are delights to the mind.'
There, standing on the catt,
he sang it from his heart.
i{those fanatics all that we do would undo;}
i{down the fanatic, down the clown;}
i{down, down, hammer them down,}
i{down to the tune of O'Donnell Abu.}
"a girl I had, but she followed another,
money I had, and it went in the night,
strong drink I had, and it brought me to sorrow,
but a good strong cause and blows are delight.'
All there caught up the tune:
"on, on, my darling man'.
i{those fanatics all that we do would undo;}
i{down the fanatic, down the clown;}
i{down, down, hammer them down,}
i{down to the tune of O'Donnell Abu.}
"Money is good and a girl might be better,
no matter what happens and who takes the fall,
but a good strong cause'
