Collection of Irish Song Lyrics


Irish Song Lyrics - Garryowen

Let Bacchus' sons be not dismayed
but join with me each jovial blade
booze and sing and lend your aid
to help me with the chorus

Instead of spa we'll drink down ale
and pay the reckoning on the nail
no man for debt shall go to jail
from Garryowen in glory

We are the boys that take delight
smashing the Limerick light when lighting
through all the streets like sporters fighting
and tearing all before us CHORUS

We'll break the windows we'll break the doors
The watch knock down by three's and four's
then let the doctors work their cures
and tinker up our bruises CHORUS

We'll beat the bailiffs out of fun
we'll make the mayors and sheriffs run
we are the boys no man dares dun
if he regards a whole skin CHORUS

Our hearts so stout have got us fame
for soon 'tis known from whence we came
where're we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory
