Breakin the law, breakin the law

Patrick: So you were drunk and trying to sneak through town
Paddy: Yes and no. I was singing at the top of my lungs and trying to logroll the barrel when I rolled right into the civic guard and land flat on me arse
Paddy: Now Brophy was an ox of a man and about as smart. He says to me “Stand up boyo! Don’cha know I’m da Law!” Well, as I stood, I went up with my fist and I shattered his jaw
Patrick: OH Shit! Then what?
Paddy: I don’t know. Next thing I remember, the barrel and I were down by the sea With a cripple leering over me
