Thought Jack to himself now what can this be
But the finest of whiskey from far Germany
Smuggled up in a basket and sold on the sly
And the name that it goes by is quare bungle rye roddy rye etc

Jack gave her a pound and he thought nothing strange
Said she ‘Hold the basket till I get you your change’
Jack looked in the basket and a baby did spy
‘Oh Begorrah’ says jack ‘This is quare bungle rye roddy rye etc’

Now to get the child christened was jack’s first intent
For to get the child christened to the parson he went
Says the parson to Jack ‘What will he go by?’
‘Bedad now,’ says Jack, ‘Call him quare bungle rye roddy rye etc’

Says the parsonto Jack, ‘Now that’s a queer name’
Says jack to the parson, It’s a queer way he came
Smuggled up in a basket and sold on the sly
And the name that he’ll go by is Quare Bungle Rye Roddy Rye etc’

Now all you young sailors who roam in the town
Beware those young damsels who skip up and down
Take a look in their baskets as they pass you by
Or else they might sell you some quare bungle rye roddy rye etc
