Young child of mine,

we’re moving across the Atlantic sea

to find a new life. In America we'll be free.

We are leaving behind a divided city,

a desperate place, no ounce of pity

and I’m glad to see the back of it.

 

They crucified your granf’ar,

so many years, so many tears,

and almost did the same to me.

 

We are floating towards freedom, darling,

and in America all will be grand and good.

 

God Bless poor Ireland.

God bless Ireland. Tiocfaidh

ár lá: our day will surely come ...

 

Moving across the Atlantic sea

to where, sweet child of mine,

you'll grow up and be free.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

Think of drifting icebergs: this week is the 100th anniversary of the real thing, not the movie.

I confess that I got it the first time, Brendan (sorry Victor :unsure: ), and it's as sad as an old Irish ballad, with a frigid dose of dedalusian irony. Appropriate to the occasion.

 

Gee, thanks! :dry:
