Catch Me If You Can

Now I’m a Potcheen
From Tullawodgean
I’ve got money
And I’ve a wee bit of land
And I’m looking for a honey
With a bit of money

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

I like the ceilidh
And the stacks of barley
I like the waltzes
Them ould jigs and the reels
I like the swinging
When big Tom is singing

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

And I’m off to Lisdoonvarna
At the end of the year
I’m off for a bit of craic
The aul woman and the beer
And I’m awful shifty
For a lad of fifty

Catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

I’ve got a brother
He’s in the Garda
I got an uncle
He’s way up there in the Dail
He’s quite a charmer
He’s a mighty big farmer

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

And I’m off to Lisdoonvarna
At the end of the year
I’m off for a bit of craic
The aul woman and the beer
And I’m awful shifty
For a lad of fifty

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

Now to conclude
And to finish me story
If there’s a young one
Out there looking for a man
Get the bus from Barna
Down to Lisdoonvarna.

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

And I’m off to Lisdoonvarna
At the end of the year
I’m off for a bit of craic
The aul woman and the beer
And I’m awful shifty
For a lad of fifty

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.

Sure I’m awful shifty
For a lad of fifty

I’d catch me if you can,
My name is Dan
Sure I’m your man.
