Sung by Jas. O'Neil, the great Irish vocalist.

Now, friends, if you will listen I'll sing to you a song
Of Ireland and her sons we loved so dear;
There were patriots and heroes, and their names we love to hear,
For the green they were not afraid to wear.
There was one so young and noble, who for his country died,
To remember him the Irish won't forget;
Perhaps you've read his speeches in the Irish history;
This hero's name was Robert Emmett.

Then give three cheers for Ireland, and let the people see
That our rifles all are ready to set old Ireland free.

Theres another I will mention, and to Irishmen most dear,
And for Ireland he proved a useful tool,
I mean Dan O'Connell, may his soul now rest in peace,
For dearly he loved Ireland and home rule.
There were three patriots to this world did bid good-bye
Before they could finish their design,
They died hand in hand trying to free their native land-
Three martyrs, Allen, Larkin, and O'Brien.
Then give three cheers for Ireland, &c.

Now America had her heroes, and she loved them well, I'm sure,
Take the history and you'll know what they have done:
There was General Lafayette, Frenchman so true,
And our own immortal General Washington.
'Tis now one hundred years since the country they did free,
And drove the English tyrant from our shore-
I wish that every Irishman could have the same to say.
Then Irelana would be free for evermore.
Then give three cheers for Ireland, &c.
