The Irish Navy  The Dubliners

Someone told me since, the three vessel mentioned in the song
have been decommissioned and scrapped decades ago and I
imagine there probably won't be a Russian invader anymore...
The C[G]líona, the Meabh and the Mu[D]cha
The p[G]ride of the Irish n[C]avy
When [G]the Captain he blows on his whis[D]tle
All the sailors go home for their t[G]ea
While[G] the army is off in the Ko[D]ngo
In Cy[G]prus or some foreign pa[C]rts
Our n[G]avy is strained to the li[D]mits
Deploying its nautical a[G]cts
One d[G]ay from the Russian inv[D]ader
Defen[G]ding our very odd f[C]ish
We fo[G]und it was just the red her[D]ring
From the signals we got from the c[G]is'
Each year they go on manoeuvres
To prepare for defence they are keen
Sometimes it's the Lakes of Killarney
More often the pond in the Green
The canal it could be of assistance
In defending our own holy ground
But due to proposed legislation
We'll have to sail all the way round
We are a seafaring nation
Defence of our land is a right
We'd fight like the devil all morning
Provided we're home by the night
