We pissed upon the Blarney Stone
And measured the lengths we had to go.
I threw a brick through Galway's Bay
And spat my hate upon the snow.

We styled ourselves on centuries past
And sang the songs our fathers wrote.
We sunned ourselves on foreign shores
And cut the emerald by the throat.

And these American dollars!
Or is it British pound notes?
Whose is this gonna have my head ???
Off with our heads our bones! ???

All the Irish
All the Irish
All the Irish must go to heaven
All the Irish
All the Irish
All the Irish must go to heaven

All the Irish must go to heaven
All the Irish must go to heaven
All the Irish must go to heaven

Who's this gonna have my head
Who's this gonna have my head

I'm running
I'm running
I'm running
Oh God oh God
I'm running
I'm running
I'm running
Oh God oh God
I'm running
God I'm running
God I'm running
God oh God I'm running

All the Irish must go heaven
But not me.

    General CommentI always wondered why all the Irish must go to heaven but him. Was it because he pissed on the Blarney Stone at the start of the song? Or because he threw the brick in Galway Bay? On reading the words again, I guess he believes he's been too corrupted by US dollars and British pounds to deserve a proper saintly Irish end, meaning he's somehow betrayed his Irish heritage with those outside influences.
