All Irish people hate my last name. Catholic, Protestant, Belfast, Dublin, you name it. My name is hated equally.

Like I said to an Aboriginal boy in my class in year 2, my dad FLEW here on QANTAS!
He actually got over here on some programme the govt had in the 60s where they advertised for immigrants to help with the worker shortage and then got his flights and everything paid for. He still doesn't vote though. He might get deported one day

My ancestors had their passage and everything paid for too, also, as well even.

You're dangerous, 'cos you're honest. (yep, thats us)
You're dangerous, you don't know what you want. ( )

You're an accident waiting to happen (How does he know?!! He must read these forums!! )

Well you stole it 'cos I needed the cash ( mg: You are soooo right Myusernamehere! )

Ah, the deeper I spin
Ah, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin. (Thats ME to a T. Me! Me! Me! )

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea? (passage from Ireland/England obviously)
Who's gonna taste your saltwater kisses? (disembarking on arrival)


I'm so glad we had this discussion I've gone my whole life not realising this song was about us/me

Thank you

I'm not Irish, but I play one on TV.

Actually, my friend Nora who is of Japanese descent and me (Heinz 57 European variety) used to say, "We're not Irish; we're I-wish!"
