Paddy is waiting in Drogheda town
For the train to carry him south
Another drunken night on the town
Messing around

The Roaring Boys, the roaring boys
It's all the same to the roaring boys
They come into town just to make some noise
Oh the life of the roaring boys

Drinking and fighting and acting the fool
Shouting insults and thinking you're cool
Telling lies and believing they're true
Who's fooling who

(Chorus rpt:)

Oh the life of the roaring boys.

Won't you tell me all your cares and problems
Won't you tell me why you look so blue
I'll take you into town, yeah, show you a thing or two
I know every bar and nightclub
Yeh, no two will be the same
I know every nightclub doorman
And they'll all know my name
They all know my name

Hey Charlie can you lend us a tenner
Just until Saturday night
You know I'll pay you back man
You know I'll see you right cos

Chorus:
I am a roaring boy
A wild colonial boy
I'll party all night long
Roaring boy

Hey Stevie, let's hit the town
I've got some money that I want to spend
Let's go out on a bender, let's get drunk again
But,
Don't tell me 'bout your cares and problems
Cos' I don't really want to know
I've got train to catch yeah
And I have got to go cos

(Chorus: x 2)
