Words by Lawrence Sheehan. Music by Andrew Mock.

Oftentimes we hear men sing of dear old Paddy's land,
But where is there a country with a history so grand?
It grieves me sorely when I see a frown upon the face
Of some men when they say that Ireland is their native place.
I think of Ireland's martyrs, and I see with my mind's eye
How bravely they stood up, and for their country's sake, to die:
Without one selfish thought, they served her with their heart and band.
'Tis then I'm proud to say that I was born in Ireland.

Tea, I'm proud I'm Irish, and that's the way to feel;
For Irishmen have always been just as true as steel.
At the seat of war, at the court of law, their equals can't be found;
It's a feather in my cap that I was born on Irish ground.

Irishmen have made their mark in almost every clime,
And then the glory which they've won will live for all the time;
Although we are not wealthy, why you will agree, I'm sure,
That while a man is honest it is no shame that he's poor;
So let us stand together now like brothers, hand in hand,
And sing the praises of our own, our dear old native land.
The time is not far distant when we'll see our country free,
So let's be proud of Ireland, that Em'rald in the sea.-Cho.
