Soodlum's 100 Irish Ballads Volume 1
instructs us, I quote, "Bunclody (meaning the bottom of the Clody) is located at the foot of Mount Leinster, County Wexford. It is the meeting place of the Clody and Slaney Rivers." Well, the Bunclody is the setting for this sad little song of an impecunious young Irishman lamenting his poverty whilst being enamoured, almost to the point of death, with a well endowed young lady (meaning wealthy of course! You were not thinking of her anatomy, were you dear surfer? You were! Shame on you!). His lack of ready cash depresses him so much that he urinates his way to Amerikay (sic).
