More Irish songs

What songs do you think of? Other than Irish Eyes Are Smiling?

I like
"Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen,
My father, he was Orange and me mother, she was Green..."
(Personal favorite line from?)
"And me being strictly neutral, I bashed everyone in sight!"

Gene Kelly dancing and singing in Take Me Out To The Ballgame (1949)
"It's the hat, me dear old Father wore, upon St Patrick's Day..."

I miss watching Silly Wizard perform on PBS. *SIGH*

Tom Lehrer (yay!) claims this is an Irish song. Heh.
"About a maid, I'll sing a song. Sing Rickety Tickety tin..."

Wild Rover
Irish Rover
Black Velvet Band (reminds me or a ghost story. tell ya later.)
MacNamara's Band
Rose of Tralee
Foggy Dew
Rickety Tickety Tin (this is Irish?)
Too-ra Loo-ra Loo-ra
Danny Boy
H-A-double R-I-G-A-N spells Harrigan
I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen (Star Trek:OS anyone?)
Who Put The Overalls In Mrs Murphy's Chowder
The Moonshiner
Cliffs of Dooneen
Follow Me Up To Carlow
All For Me Grog
No Irish Need Apply
Mother Machree
(I now love this site, but in perfect truth many of these are Scottish songs.)

Thank you George M Cohan.

*rant alert*"
Okay, I have to stop here and say that...
NO, St Patrick's Day is different in Ireland in America NOT because Irish-Americans don't know their heritage and don't respect Ireland and blah blah blah. Stop. It's that Irish-Americans have an entirely different heritage /here/ to be remembering. You know? They came here and life was vastly different in ways that are perfectly OKAY to honor and remember. Geez. Get over yourselves. And even the drunken, green-beer sloshing Non-Irish here? They are indeed part of it. Maybe all the bashers should do a little research themselves.
*end rant alert*
Have you heard about the Irish boomarang?
It doesn't come back, it just sings songs about how much it wants to.

I actually hate cabbage. And oatmeal, but that's another story...

Time to watch The Quiet Man and Darby O'Gill and Finnegan's Rainbow and all those little people movies
