I thought it was "Pak the ca at the cub and go into the bah for a drink
with the gels." I could be wrong though, it's been many, many years since
my ship was at the Boston Navy Shipyard for several months. I remember the
Forest Hills Irish bars and the expatriate Irish who had fled after the
1916 revolt with great fondness. The folk of Massachusetts were pretty kind
to a young sailor from Texas back then.
