    There are three kinds of. . .

    . . . songs in Ireland:

    1) Rebel Songs

    Och ochan a Rgh, gur tinn an galair an grdh;
    chan eil neach air am bi nach saoil gur seachdain gach l
    *** d'bhrist e mo chrdh 's *** d'sgaoil e cuislean mo shlint'
    Bhith 'g amharc ad dhidh, a gheug, a bhroillich ghil
    bhin, ghil bhin.

    Nam faiceadh tu geug 's i 'g irigh, madainn chiin che
    le maise da rir n ceudan mhealladh 'nan digh -
    Gur binne do bheul na teudan fhidheall ri cel,
    'S nach truagh leat mi 'd dhidh leam fhin air cnocan ri brn,
    ri brn.

    'S ma thid thu air srid, a ghridh, biodh gini 'nad phc,
    Is l mo dheoch-slint' gach it an suidh thu m'an bhrd,
    An cridhe geal fialaidh, eutrom aighearach g,
    'S gur milis leam fhin am beul o'n tigeadh an cel, an cel.

    A bhuachaille bhin, ma's ill leat labhairt air ths,
    'S ann leat-sa *** dil mo lmh ma thig thu rium dlth;
    Is truagh mar a t nach d'thraidh mis' agus tu
    Ann an eilean *** trigh, *** rmh, *** choite, *** stiir,
    *** stiir.





    2) Songs Sung During Drinking

    Let your quacks and newspapers be cuttin' their capers
    And curing the vapors the scratch and the gout
    With their medical potions, their pills and their lotions
    Upholding their notions, they're mighty put out.

    Who can tell the true physic of all things prophetic
    And pitch to the divil, cramp, colic and spleen
    You'll know it I think if you take a big drink
    With your mouth to the brink of a jug of poteen

    So stick to the cratur' the best thing in nature
    For sinking your sorrows and raising your joys
    Oh what moderation gives hope to a nation
    Or brings consolation like poteen me boys.

    No liquid cosmetic to lovers athletic
    Or bodies pathetic can give such a bloom
    As the sweet by the powers in the garden of flowers
    E'er gave their own bowers such a darling perfume
    And this liquid so rare if you willingly share
    To be taking your hair when it's frizzled and dead
    Oh the sod has the merit to yield the true spirit
    So strong it will shake all the hairs from your head

    Then stick to the cratur' the best thing in nature
    For sinking your sorrows and raising your joys
    Oh since its perfection, no doctor's direction
    Can cleanse the complexion like poteen me boys

    As a child in me cradle, me nurse from her ladle
    Was swillin her mouth with a notion of pap
    When a drop from her bottle fell into my throttle
    I stumbled and capered clean out of her lap

    On the floor I lay crawlin' and screaming and bawling
    'Til me mother and father were called to the fore
    All sobbing and sighing they feared I was dying
    But soon found I only was crying for more.

    So stick to the cratur' the best thing in nature
    For sinking your sorrows and raising your joys
    Oh lord how they'd chuckle if babes in their truckle
    They only could suckle on poteen me boys

    Through my youthful aggression, through times of depression
    My childhood's impression still clung to my mind
    And at school or at college the basis [bolus]* of knowledge
    I never could gulp 'til with whiskey combined

    And as older I'm growing times ever bestowin'
    On Erin's potation, a flavor so fine
    And how ere they may lecture on jove and his nectar
    Itself is the only true liquid divine

    So stick to the cratur' the best thing in nature
    For sinking your sorrows and raising your joys
    Oh lord, 'tis the right thing for courting and fighting
    There's nowt so exciting as poteen me boys.

    Come guess me this riddle, what beats pipes and fiddle
    What's hotter than mustard and milder than cream
    What best wets your whistle, what's clearer than crystal
    What's sweeter than honey and stronger than steam

    What'll make the lame walk, what will make the dumb talk,
    The elixir of life and philospher's stone
    And what helped Mr. Brunel to build the Thames Tunnel
    Wasn't it poteen from ould Inishowen

    So stick to the cratur' the best thing in nature
    For sinking your sorrows and raising your joys
    Oh lord, it's no wonder, if lightning and thunder
    Weren't made from the plunder of poteen me boys!





    3) Songs Sung the Day After Drinking

    Don't forget the fourth kind of Irish song - the one in which boy meets girl, boy seduces girl, girl says boy must now marry her, and boy says thanks, anyway, but I already have a wife back in my home town. The pretty tunes can almost slip by the fact that the guy in the song is a total heel, more or less without exception.

    Errr, that would probably fall under category two.
