I have noticed that musical question based threads seem to get fairly good responses so here's one for you music 'boffs' out there and it's something that has bugged me for years. What are the words in the 'chorus' Whiskey in a Jar.. .(The Thin Lizzey version if it makes a difference).. .If you have this song and have never thought about this I suggest you listen. It will bug you for evermore.

WHISKEY IN THE JAR (traditional). .. .As I was goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains. .I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'. .I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier. .I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya. .. .Musha ring dum a doo dum a da. .Whack for my daddy-o. .Whack for my daddy-o. .There's whiskey in the jar-o. .. .I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny. .I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly. .She swore that she'd love me, never would she leave me. .But the devil take that woman for you know she treat me easy. .. .Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber. .Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger. .For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell. .I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels. .. .Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'. .And some men like ta hear a cannon ball a roarin'. .Me I like sleepin' specially in my Molly's chamber. .But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah. .. .Nice!

Before anyone in the 60's crowd asks, here are the lyrics to "Louie Louie". .. .written by R. Berry in 1955: . .. . Louie Louie, me gotta go. . Louie Louie, me gotta go. . Fine little girl she waits for me. . Me catch the ship for cross the sea. . Me sail the ship all alone. . Me never thinks me make it home. . (chorus). . Three nights and days me sail the sea. . Me think of girl constantly. . On the ship I dream she there. . I smell the rose in her hair. . (chorus, guitar solo). . Me see Jamaica moon above. . It won't be long, me see my love. . I take her in my arms and then. . Me tell her I never leave again

OK, o knowledgeable ones, what are the lyrics in Radiohead's 'No Surprises' (OK Computer)?. .Or indeed any song off that album? . .What do they mean anyway?

It was years before the chorus in Joni Mitchells "Carey" became correctly known to me Its not:. .. ."Carey get out your cane, and I`ll put on some silk", but "and I`ll put on some silver". .. .Either way, it works though...curious
