  1. Love the song…….There’s no one as Irish as Barak O’Bama….

    Is there a recording other than what is on UTube?

  2. By request, the lyrics:

    Chorus 1:
    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

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

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    His mam’s daddy’s grandaddy was one Fulmuth Kearney
    He’s as Irish as any, from the lakes of Killarney
    His mam’s from a long line of great Irish mamas
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    He looks after his own, a true son of St. Patrick
    He chose as his mate, Joe Biden, a Catholic
    Prodies, Jews, Muslisms, even the Dalai Lama
    No, there’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    Our Barack’s a hero, I heard them say
    Fenian to Kenyan, it’s the American way
    He’s Cúchulainn, Liongo, not Vishnu or Brahma
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    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, we can shout it
    Whether apostrophe or inverted comma
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama.

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    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

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    From Kerry to 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

    O’Leary, O’Reilly, O’Hare and O’Hara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama
    From the ould Blarney stone to the green hills of Tara
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    Tooral-U, tooral-S, tooral-A, toor-a-lama
    There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

    Repeat!
