Traditional Irish Music
I'm enquiring about an old song called 'Mrs McGrath and the Professor' I can remember a couple of verses as follows, but I wonder if anyone knows the rest of the song? The verses I remember go as follows:
Now Mrs McGrath, the Professor said,
Would you like to make a doctor out of your sone Ted?
With a stethoscope and a bowler hat,
No Mrs McGrath, wouldn't you like that?
With my Tooria etc etc
Now Ted came up to the big City
To go and study Medicine at UCD
But he didn't get on too well I fear,
For he took to the women and he took to the beer,
With my Tooria etc
John. I have been waiting for the opportunity to get the music of my other great hero on here. You have just given it to me. Bruce recorded it with The Seeger Sessions Band and if you get a chance to buy the DVD of them live in Dublin take it. Fantastic. Its called Mrs McGrath and there are lots of more traditional versions on youtube
Very good Tony, but not what I was looking for. The that I am seeking is a different version, a parody, I suppose, look carefully at the words I posted above. Anyone got any ideas?
Ah well. At least I got to post Brucie. Ill have a look and get back if i find anything.
these words are wrong check the words of the dubliners doing mrs mcgrath its different
