"Jar of Porter" as written by Ciaran Padraig Maire Bourke, Ronald Joseph Drew, Barney Mckenna and Luke Kelly....
Toora loora loora la, toora loora loora la
Toora loora loora la, give the child a jar of porter
Toora loora loora la, toora loora loora la
Sing toora loora loora la, give the child a jar of porter

If you want your child to grow, your child to grow, your child to grow
If you want your child to grow, give 'im a jar of porter

Sing toora loora loora la, toora loora loora la
Sing toora loora loora la, give 'im a jar of porter

When I was young and cradle cake, no drop of milk now would I take
Me father up, then had his spake, "Give the child a jar of porter"

Sing toora loora loora la, toora loora loora la;
Sing toora loora loora la, give the child a jar of porter

When I am dead and in my grave, I hope for me a prayer you'll say
And as you're passing by that you'll throw in a jar of porter

Toora loora loora la, toora loora loora la
Sing toora loora loora la, throw in a jar of porter

Sad verse
And when I reach the golden gates, I hope I'll not have long to wait
I'll call Saint Peter aside and say "Brought yup a jar of porter"

Sing toora loora loora la, toora loora loora la
Sing toora loora loora la, brought yup a jar of porter
