When the lads returned home from Korea,
We sung out their names loud and clear –
Staunton and Keane,
Duff, Harte and Breen,
Kinsella and McAteer.
But we must have been out on the beer-o,
For our manners were all shot to zero.
Kilbane was ignored
Didn’t get his reward,
You might say he’s an unsung hero.
