We’ve Missed Out On The Party!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The Angelus is ringing
The quare one won’t stop grinning
She knows I’m spending summer here at home

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Folks said “Tis not important”
So as Gaybo paid the poors rent
Eamon Dunphy raised the topic on his show

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Grown men began to squabble
As they dined on Dublin coddle
All and sundry telephoned The Dail to know

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Without fear of contradiction
Fans were chopping Sky subscriptions
Tis like having skis and there’s no sign of snow

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Ryanair is fuming as no Germany bound do means
Planes aren’t taking die hard fans from Ireland
And the Irish fans with cancelled bookings?
It’s been said that they’ve been looking
For a telly free destination just off Thailand

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 It’s been said that on the Mardyke
Depression sets in hard like
When kids are playing soccer in green shirts

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Tough Cork women say “What tripe”
Then the words of Michael Stipe
Remind the fans that…. sometimes everybody hurts

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 To the greens of Montenotte
Though this may sound quite snobby
“Cancelled trips to Germany. Could be worse”?

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Ah but down there in Cork city
Where die hard greens seek pity
The Samaratians say they’re stunned by overwork

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Ryanair is fuming as no Germany bound do means
Planes aren’t taking die hard fans from Ireland
And the Irish fans with cancelled bookings?
It’s been said that they’ve been looking
For a telly free destination just off Thailand

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 “If you go off on a sail in the summer from Kinsale
The breeze will blow the cobwebs from your mind”
Blow the cobwebs from me mind? What a stupid flippin line
The World Cup’s on and we’ve been left behind

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Oh the coastline of Tralee I’m quite sure you’d agree
Is stunning in its beauty all the same?
Tralee gives awful dreams to me where I’m there beneath the sea
And drowning cos I’m not in Germany for the games

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 They say that in Fermoy that there’s plenty to enjoy
If you’re in to climbing hills cos nothings flat
I’m not that into climbing hills as I’ve no mountaineering skills
But I’d climb Mt Everest to see Ireland win a World Cup match

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Will you spend a day in Youghal and just forget about football
After all its just another match. Just another match!
To the likes of you perhaps?
Footballs not about life or death
Or even drawing ones last breath.
Footballs……… much more serious than that!

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Ryanair is fuming as no Germany bound do means
Planes aren’t taking die hard fans from Ireland
And the Irish fans with cancelled bookings?
It’s been said that they’ve been looking
For a telly free destination just off Thailand!

Notes
