~to post this. I started crying. Isn't it the truth though?:
: I'll tell you a story of a row in the town,
: : When the green flag went up and the Crown rag came down,
: : 'Twas the neatest and sweetest thing ever you saw,
: : And they played the best games played in Erin Go Bragh.
: : One of our comrades was down at Ring's end,
: : For the honor of Ireland to hold and defend,
: : He had no veteran soldiers but volunteers raw,
: : Playing sweet Mauser music for Erin Go Bragh.
: : Now here's to Tom Pearce and our comrades who died
: : Tom Clark, McDunna, McDurmott, McBryde,
: : And here's to Jan Connelly who gave one hurrah,
: : And placed the machine guns for Erin Go Bragh.
: : One brave English captain was ranting that day,
: : Saying, "Give me one hour and I'll blow you away,"
: : But a big Mauser bullet got stuck in his craw,
: : And he died of lead poisoning in Erin Go Bragh.
: : Old Kent and his comrades like lions at bay,
: : From the South Dublin Union poured death and dismay,
: : And what was their horror when the Englishmen saw
: : All the dead khaki soldiers in Erin Go Bragh.
: : Now here's to old Dublin, and here's her renown,
: : In the long generation her fame will go down,
: : And our children will tell how their forefathers saw,
: : The red blaze of freedom in Erin Go Braugh.
