What the devil is a rogue, a question on many a tongue,
Would ye say he'd be a clever fella, or just a regular bum?
Hint at the first and friend you will be, his face all sunshine and light
god forbid mention the second, you'll be a thundering gobshite
He'll greet you with a ready smile, or more a three toothed grin,
A wink perhaps, a rosy cheek, maybe even a dimple on his chin
His shiny locks are neat and tidy, at the front a cows lick
And if occasion does demand, then a dob of saliva does the trick
He's never short of a bob or two, though it's not wealth he is after
If to trade he has devil a bit, he will draw you to haggle and barter
If at times he's a little short, and required to be thrifty,
He'll promise he is an honorable man, if perhaps a little shifty
If it's some work that you need doing, then you can put it his way
He'll graft and give it some elbow grease, but perhaps not today,
Because the sun is on his back, and a light breeze in his face
To toil on this lovely day, would be a bloody disgrace
Come'ere, I'll tell ye a good one he says, pouring a generous measure,
A pint and a drop of ten year old, lubricating his pleasure,
He'll guide you trough some woven truths, and deeds of mighty fair
With bailing twine to hold his trousers, but his manner so debonair
This man can look back in pride, at the labor of his fruits
With an apple in each pocket, and some mud on his boots
All the way from Galway to Dublin, from Limerick to Donegal
On this road well travelled, he has probably seen it all
So if you should see this man about town, with a swagger to his gait
The garb of course is not too shabby, if perhaps a little bit quaint
Scratch your head if you will, is it the prince or the toad?
The man before you is his lordship, the infamous AULD ROGUE.
