The Man from the Daily Mail

Now Ireland's a very funny place Sir it's a strange and troubled land
And the Irish are a very funny race sir every girls in the Cumann na mban
Every doggie has a tri-coloured ribbon tied firmly to its tail
And it wouldn't be surprising if there'd be another rising
Said the man from the Daily mail

Chorus
Every bird upon my word is singing treble - I'm a rebel
Every hen it's said is laying hand-grenades over there sir I declare Sir
And every cock in the farmyard stock crows in triumph for the gale
And it wouldn't be surprising if there' be another rising
Said the man from the Daily Mail

Well the other day I travelled down to Clare Sir I spied in an old boreen
A bunch of silly gooses there Sir Dressed in orange white and green
They marched to the German goose step as they whistled Granne Wale
And I'm shaking in me shoes as I'm sending out the news said the man from the Daily Mail

Chorus

Now the whole place is seething with sedition it's Sinn Fein through and through
All the peelers they are joining local units and the passwords Sinn Fein too
Every doggie wears a tri-coloured ribbon tied firmly to its tail
And it wouldn't be surprising if there'd be another rising
Said the man form the Daily Mail

Chorus
