How I Stack Me Oul CDs

By Mattie Lennon

This song is no way smutty,
I don't approve of sleaze,
I'm simply going to tell you
How I stack me oul CDs.
I've put the best of Christy
("Ride On") with Mary Black.
Richie Kavanagh's there beside them
With his latest "Scratch me Back"

Van Morrison is on his own,
I think that's fair and right.
Brendan Shine with Jimmy Crowley,
Thinks I put him there for spite.
Just for a little devilment
(And not because he strayed)
De Burgh I'll slide in gently
Between Daniel and Sinead.

I've shifted Philomena
And left her at the side.
Then squeezed in Elenor McEvoy;
She's under Tom McBride.
The Wolfe Tones and James Galway?
I've kept them well apart.
And Mary Duff and Bono,
Are separated by Frank Hart.

I've a special place for artists
Who appear on Failte Isteach,
But I'm keeping P.J. Murrihy
Away from Dickie Rock.
And a separate collection,
(Secured by bolts and locks)
It's listed in the index
As "Mary Coughlan's Box".

And then my compilation,
Features Cliff and Michael too,
So there can't be any question
Of who goes under who.
The Midland Maestro's' status
Seems to change from day to day,
So I have to check with Donie,
On the order of display.

Now things can be confusing,
And sometimes get me down;
The picture on "The Fury's Best"
Is that of Shane McGowan.
I've mislaid Louise Morrissy
And scratched Dolores Keane.
Oh God....I've Declan Nerney
On top of Ann Mulqueen.

For Seamus Moore and Coulter
The whole effect I'd ruin
If I put "The Sea Of Tranquility"
Beside "Fluthered On The Moon".
Imagine Barney's banjo
With Sharon's gentle squeeze?
You just can't be too careful
When you're stacking th' oul CDs.
