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
Gun d'bhrist e mo chrdh 's gun 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 gun dil mo lmh ma thig thu rium dlth;
Is truagh mar a t nach d'thraidh mis' agus tu
Ann an eilean gun trigh, gun rmh, gun choite, gun stiir,
gun 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

. . . . ummm, I'll get back to you tomorrow on that one.

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.
