Kiss me, I'm Swed-- er, Irish!

D'ye no' get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe! Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland! Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin! So say it once, say it loud--I'm black, and I'm proud!
--The Commitments



(CHORUS)
We're gonna
Drink and fight
And drink and fight
And drink and fight some more
When the drinking's done, grab anyone
Then go and fight some more
So grab your friends and neighbors
And punch 'em in the eye
And raise another glass and sing
A Dublin Lullabye

O'Leary was a bastard, I gave his head a crack
I drank a pint of Guinness, and puked all over his back
O'Shaughnessey was sickened with Paddy in the back
When Irish eyes are smiling, we'll punch 'em 'till they're black!

(CHORUS)

O'Leary and O'Connell had been drinking pretty hard
Been sitting for a fortnight with Clancy at the bar
He got so stewed that when he spewed we swore he must've drowned
So we kicked his ass, raised a glass, and bought another round!

(CHORUS)

Well, I went out with O'Leary to Old MacDonald's wake
We drank a lot of stout and ale, and ate a lot of cake
O'Malley's singing "Danny Boy" and it filled my eyes with tears,
So I kicked his nuts right into his guts and had another beer!

(CHORUS, GUITAR SOLO, CHORUS TWICE)

--Captain Tractor



I'm going to be downtown most of the day; if you see me, say hello.
