To begin the morning the warden’s bawling
“Get out of bed and clean up your cell!”
And that ould triangle went jingle jangle
Along the banks of the Royal Canal

On a fine spring evening, the lag lay dreaming
The seagulls wheeling high above the wall
And the ould triangle went jingle jangle
Along the banks of the Royal Canal

The screw was peeping, the lag was sleeping
While he lay weeping for his girl, Sal
And the ould triangle went jingle jangle
Along the banks of the Royal Canal

The wind was rising and the day decl;ining
As I lay pining in my prison cell
And the ould triangle went jingle jangle
Along the banks of the Royal Canal

In the female prison there are seventy women
I wish it was with them that I did dwell
Then that ould triangle could jingle jangle
Along the banks of the Royal Canal

The day was dying and the wind was sighing
As I lay crying in my prison cell
And the ould triangle went jingle jangle
Along the banks of the Royal Canal
