Last of this bunch.. a song called Clancy.. well I think it is..the lyrics go something like
Clancy left the barbershop with tonic on his hair
He went into the barroom and met O'Reilly there
O'Reilly said for goodness sakes now do I smell perfume
Before he could stack the cue in the rack
Clancy lowered the boom
Thanks in advance
Mick

Pop song sung by Dennis Day (Eugene McNulty), which made it to 23rd on the hit parade on March 26, 1949, then disappeared off the charts.

Funny you should ask, Mick. Somebody posted the lyrics just a couple weeks ago, and the tune went up just this week - Click here.

From a CD entitled "Ireland's Greatest Hits"

Clancy Lowered the Boom
sung by 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 nevertheless, when trouble would press, Clancy lowered the boom!

Chorus:
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 around the neighborhood just shooting 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!

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

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

O'Hoolahan delivered ice to Mrs. Clancy's flat.
He'd always lingered for a while to talk of this and that.
One day he kissed her just as Clancy walked into the room,
Before you could say the time of the day, 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 and kissed the bride and pulverized the groom,
Then quick as a wink, before you could think, Clancy lowered the boom!

This song was taken up by 'the crooners' and I remember it being moderately popular on Australia Radio ini the 1950's.

It still turns up fairly regularly in Irish pubs in the northeast U.S.

I heard it on an old 78 of Charlie Chamberlain, about whom Rick Fielding wrote "So Long, Charlie" on his Lifeline CD.
