Beware the Irish Lavatory (VIDEO)

In Kenmare, Ireland and extra night on this rainy day, Stacey and I decided to have a nice meal and take in some music at one of the local pubs, O’Donnabhain’s.  Phenominal food (I had the Irish stew), peaceful and warm, the place is cozy and highly recommended.

The gentleman singing, remembered for the gleam in his eye, played an entire catalog of songs documenting Irish history.  Important Irish history.  The following is one of his songs about seven elderly women who once broke into a bathroom, then were found after a week of being locked in.  I’ve included the lyrics, below, for your amusement.  Pardon my video quality; just wanted to capture a bit of the tune to have the memory:

Chorus:
And it’s oh, dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there

The first old lady was Jennifer Pim
she went in on a personal whim
Her privates got stuck ‘tween the bowl and the rim
And nobody knew she was there

The second old lady was little Miss Humphrey
She sat down, and made herself comfy
Tried to get up, but could not get her bum free
And nobody knew she was there

The third old lady was little Miss Draper
She went inside and she couldn’t find any paper
She had to make use of a bricklayer’s scraper
And nobody knew she was there

The next old lady was Betty Ann Bruster,
She sat on the handle and she thought someone goosed her!
She said, Oh, my God! This don’t feel like it used to,
But nobody knew she was there.

The fifth old lady was little Miss Bartlett
She paid her penny and straight in she darted
What a waste of a penny, ’cause she only *@rted
And nobody knew she was there

The sixth old lady was little Miss Murray
She went in, in a heck of a hurry
When she got there, it was too late to worry
And nobody knew she was there

The last old lady was little Miss Mason
The toilets were full, so she peed in the basin
And that was the water that I washed my face in
‘Cause I didn’t know she’d been there

And it’s oh, dear what can the matter be?
Seven old ladies got stuck in the lavatory
They were there from Sunday to Saturday
Nobody knew they were there

    1. It was a really great evening. And yes, I found that other stews I tried in Ireland were a bit bland, but this one was really good. And their sticky toffee pudding was *great*.
