Clancy Lowered the Boom Lyrics

Dennis Day
Now Clancy was a peaceful man, if you know what I mean.
The cops picked up the pieces after Clancy left the scene.
He never looked for trouble that's a fact you can assume.
But never the less, when trouble would press Clancy lowered the boom!

Oh, that Clancy! Oh, that Clancy!
Whenever they got his Irish up,
Clancy lowered the boom!

O'Leary was a fighting man; they all knew he was tough.
He strutted round the neighborhood, a shootin' off his guff.
He picked a fight with Clancy; then and there he sealed his doom.
Before you could shout "O'Leary, look out!"
Clancy lowered the boom!

Clancy left the barbershop with tonic on his, hair,
He walked into the poolroom and he met O'Reilly there.
O'Reilly said, "For goodness sake, now do I smell perfume?"
Before you could stack your cue in the rack,
Clancy lowered the boom!

Mulrooney walked into the bar and ordered up a round.
He left his drink to telephone, and Clancy drank it down.
Mulrooney said "Who drunk me, drink? I'll lay him in his tomb!"
Before you could pat the top of your hat,
Clancy lowered the boom!

The neighbors all turned out for Kate O'Grady's wedding night.
McDougal said, "Let's have some fun, I think I'll start a fight!"
He wrecked the hall, then kissed the bride and pulverized the groom.
Then quick as a wink, before you could think,
Clancy lowered the boom!
