Damien Dempsey sings funny words to Dirty Old Town on Australian TV

He’s scarleh for his granny for havin’ his ma.

TRUE BLUE DUB Damien Dempsey stepped out of his comfort zone on Australian TV this week, adding a few unusual words to some famous Irish tunes.

Dempsey was appearing alongside Irish comedian Jason Byrne on music-themed comedy panel show Spicks and Specks when he was challenged to replace song words with phrases from a selection of publications.

First up was Dirty Old Town, which Dempsey had to slip words from Stylish Doggywear into.

In the words of Byrne, “Go for it Damo”.
