From CD #1:
The Low-back'd Car
Words and music by Samuel Lover
Written and performed by Samuel Lover in his mid-19th-century one-man show, Irish Evenings, this song was old and beloved by Joyce's day. The principal appearance in Ulysses occurs right at the end of the Eumaeus chapter. The song's mixture of high language with low subject matter (and the arch, blink-and-you'll-miss-it double entendre of poll/pole) no doubt recommended it to Joyce as an apt recessional for the evening's festivities.
