Another man came a courtin’ her
And his name was Mickey Bags
He was a commercial traveller
An’ he dealt in bones and rags

Well he took her out to Sandymount
For to see the waters rowl
An’ he stole the heart of the Twangman’s girl
Playin’ Billy-in-the-bowl

Oh, when the twang man heard of that
He flew into a terrible rage
And he swore be the contents of his twang cart
On him he’d have revenge

So he stood in wait near James’s Gate
Till the poor old Bags came up
With his twang knife, sure he took the life
Of the poor ould gather ’em up

And now you’ve heard my story
And I hope you’ll be good men
And not go chasing the Twangman’s mot
Or any other oul hen

For she’ll leave you without a brass farthing
Not even an old sack of rags
And that’s the end of the story
Of poor old Mickey Bags
