Irelands On Its Way.. (Oh lordy, lordy me.)


Music and lyrics by Richie Kavanagh

Chorus
Ireland, Ireland’s on its way, Ireland Irelands on its way. 
We’re all going to America, we’re all going to America.
Jack showed us how to play, Jack showed us how to play.
We’ll be there on the final day, we’ll be there on the final day.

Oh lordy, lordy me, lordy, lordy me.
Oh lordy, lordy me.

“Well Johnny, will we go to the world cup?”

We’ll have to get a bank loan, we’ll have to get a bank loan.
Nothings stopping us from a going, nothings stopping us from a going.
I hope we get a visa now, I hope we get a visa now.
We’ve got to get one somehow, we’ve got ta get one some how.

Chorus
Ireland, Ireland’s on its way, Ireland, Irelands on its way. 
We’re all going to America, we’re all going to America.
Jack showed us how to play, Jack showed us how to play,
We’ll be there on the final day, we’ll be there on the final day.

Oh lordy, lordy me, lordy, lordy me.
Oh lordy, lordy me.

Well I’ve never been on a plane before, never been on a plane before.
I mightn’t even never come back no more, mightn’t even come back no more, 
We’ll be all skint to the bone, we’ll be all skint to the bone.
By the time that we get home, by the time that we get home.

Chorus
Ireland, Ireland’s on its way, Ireland, Irelands on its way. 
We’re all going to America, we’re all going to America.
Jack showed us how to play, Jack showed us how to play.
We’ll be there on the final day, we’ll be there on the final day,

Oh lordy, lordy me, lordy, lordy me.
Oh lordy, lordy me,

We’ll shout for the team and big Jack, shout for the team and big Jack. 
Every night we’ll have a great aul craic, every night we’ll have great aul craic.
In all the Irish pubs in town, in all the Irish pubs in town.
We’ll let a few pints of Guinness down, we’ll let a few pints of Guinness down.

Chorus
Ireland, Ireland’s on its way, Ireland, Irelands on its way. 
We’re all going to America, we’re all going to America.
Jack showed us how to play, Jack showed us how to play.
We’ll be there on the final day, we’ll be there on the final day.

Oh lordy, lordy me, lordy, lordy me.
Oh lordy, lordy me.

Good golly, Miss Molly. Why are the Irish, oh so jolly?” 
Oh lordy, lordy me, oh lordy, lordy me.
Oh lordy me, oh lordy, lordy meeeeee……..
