    Lyrics
    There’s No One As Irish As Barack O’Bama
    Written by The Corrigan Brothers and Shay Black

    Chorus:
    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the old Blarney Stone to the green Hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    You don’t believe me, I hear you say
    But Barack’s as Irish as our own JFK
    His granddaddy’s granddaddy came from Moneygall
    A village in Offaly, well known to you all.

    His mam’s daddy’s granddaddy was one Falmuth Kearney
    He’s as Irish as any from the Lakes of Killarney
    His mam’s from a long line of great Irish Mamma’s
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    Our Barack’s a hero, I’ve heard them say
    Fenian to Kenyan, the American Way
    He’s Cuchulainn, Liongo, not Vishnu or Brahma
    But there’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    A name is a name and there’s no doubt about it
    Barack O’Bama’s name, you can shout it
    Whether apostrophe or inverted comma
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama.

    Now you Hillary supporters don’t you vote for McCain
    And the VP needs brains, so forget about Palin
    With Cheney and Bush, they are all ignorama
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    From Kerry and Cork to old Donegal
    Let’s hear it for Barack, from old Moneygall
    From the Lakes of Killarney to old Connemara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    Last Chorus:
    Tooral – U, tooral – S, tooral – A, toor a lama
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
