He wishes for a new Ireland shirt

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Had I the brand new Ireland shirt,
A masterpiece of emerald green,
Embossed with logo extrovert
And “Eircom” writ in font eighteen,
I would wear it to all home games.
But I being poor have just the top
From World Cup 1994,
Which my wife uses for a mop.
Mop lightly, for you mop with my shirt.



Ah, the cloths of heaven
