Garngad’s Irish Bhoy

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There was great excitement,
Filled with pleasure and joy,
Songs were sung in harmony
Of Garngad’s Irish Bhoy.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Children ran through the street
Relating the news, expanding the story.
How Celtic won again at Parkhead,
From goal after goal from James McGrory.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A football pitch would be outlined
On a cobblestone street,
Were the sons of Irish immigrants
Played with the poorest of shoes on their feet.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They played until darkness fell,
Or when the rain tore at their souls.
But they told their mothers, told their fathers,
How they scored a James McGrory goal.
