  1. irlanda folk müziğinin dallarından biri olan "irish rebel song" türünde bestelenmiş, ingiliz emperyalizmine karşı asi sözleriyle bilinen, isyan kokan bu muhteşem eser, bir ira marşıdır.

    i was born on a dublin street
    where the loyal drums did beat
    and the loving english feet walked all over us,
    and every single night when me dad would come home tight
    he'd invite the neighbors out with this chorus:

    come out you black and tans,
    come out and fight me like a man
    show your wife how you won medals down in flanders
    tell her how the ira made you run like hell away,
    from the green and lovely lanes of killeshandra.

    come tell us how you slew
    them ol' arabs two by two
    like the zulus they had knives and bows and arrows,
    of how bravely you faced one
    with your sixteen-pounder gun
    and you frightened all the natives to the marrow.

    come out you black and tans,
    come out and fight me like a man
    show your wife how you won medals down in flanders
    tell her how the ira made you run like hell away,
    from the green and lovely lanes of killeshandra.

    come let us hear you tell
    how you slammed the brave parnell,
    and thought him well and truly persecuted,
    where are the stares and jeers
    that you proudly let us hear
    when our heroes of sixteen were executed.

    come out you black and tans,
    come out and fight me like a man
    show your wife how you won medals down in flanders
    tell her how the ira made you run like hell away,
    from the green and lovely lanes of killeshandra.

    oh! come out you british huns,
    come out and fight without your guns
    show your wife how you won medals up in derry!
    you murdered sixteen men and you'll do the same again,
    so get out of here and take your bloody army.

    come out you black and tans,
    come out and fight me like a man
    show your wife how you won medals down in flanders
    tell them how the ira made you run like hell away,
    from the green and lovely lanes in killeshandra.
