How To Play

INTRO
G D Em C G D Em C
 
 
VERSE 1
Em                Em              Em
Bridie was teaching out in Carysfort
Em                 Em
I was working in the bank
G                      D
Two paychecks every Friday
          Em
And a Morris Minor out the back
 
Em                      Em
But I was mad for jigs and reels
Em                      Em
Drinking dirty big pints of stout
          G                      D
When the Bank of Ireland gave me the boot
  Em
They said, "Don't let the door hit your arse
             G   D  Em  C  G  D  Em  C
On the way out"
 
 
CHORUS
Em         Em        Em
Fiddlee, diddlee, deidely, dee
Em          Em          Em
I was born to play the funky céilí
G                  D        Em       C
Over the seas and far away, off to Americay
G         G       D
Fiddlee, diddlee, deidely, dee
          Em                    C
Where the wild, wild women are waitin' for me
 G
Think of me, Bridie
     D               Em           C
Whenever you see me there on your MTV
  G                       D
I love you, acushla, but how could I be
    Em             C        G D  Em  C  G  D
Without me punky, funky céilí
 
Em  C
 
 
VERSE 2
Em            Em              Em
Bridie broke down and started to bawl
 Em                   Em                  Em
When I told her about me divorce from the bank
     G                      D
She said "I've got news of me own a stor
     Em
I'm two months late, it's not with the rent"
 
Em                       Em
She said I'd have to be tellin' her da
Em                       Em
So we drove the Morris Minor to Cork
     G                      D
The ould fella said "You've got two choices
  Em                     Em              G  D  Em
Castration or a one way ticket to New York"
 
C  G  D  Em  C
 
 
CHORUS
Em         Em        Em
Fiddlee, diddlee, deidely, dee
Em       Em            Em
I was born to play the funky céilí
G                  D        Em       C
Over the seas and far away, off to Americay
G        G         D
Fiddlee, diddlee, deidely, dee
           Em                    C
Where the wild, wild women are waitin' for me
G
Think of me, Bridie
    D                Em           C
Whenever you see me there on your MTV
  G                       D
I love you, acushla, but how could I be
    Em             C        G  D  Em  C  G  D
Without me punky, funky céilí
 
Em  C
 
 
VERSE 3
Em            Em              Em
So here I am up on Bainbridge Avenue
Em                      Em
Still in one piece but glad I'm alive
    G               D
Drinking dirty big glasses of porter
            Em
Playin' me jigs and me reels and me slides
 
Em               Em              Em
Think of you, Bridie, whenever I'm sober
Em               Em              Em
Which isn't too often, I have to confess
  G                    D
Take good care of the Morris Minor
Em
Bad luck to your da
     G                D
And give the baby a great big kiss
  Em                      G  D  Em  C  G  D  Em  C
From his daddy in the Bronx
 
 
OUTRO
   G         D           Em            C
Oh Bridie, I'm still crazy about you, girl
   G         D           Em            C
Does the baby look like me, Bridie?
   G         D           Em            C
Has he got red hair and glasses?
   G         D           Em            C
Oh, Bridie, sell the Morris Minor
  G         D           Em            C
Come on out to America, girl
 
 
 G        D           Em            C
The pubs never close over here
G         D           Em            C
I've got a palace up on Bainbridge Avenue
G         D           Em            C
I've got the biggest bed in the world, girl
 G         D           Em            C
Oh, We can stay in it and make babies forever
