[Dixielandjazz] Songs for Ireland

This thread reminds me of my first St Patrick's Day in the USA (1973, 
Cincinnati, to be precise). A couple of my co-workers took me to an Irish 
bar after work. As we bellied up to the bar, the juke box was playing an 
Irish band, and I suddenly became aware of the words they were singing - 
something about "and we'll send them to Hell with their red white and blue". 
My friend also heard this, and said (rather loudly, in my opinion!) "Oh my 
God, what am I doing bringing an Englishman into an Irish bar on St Paddy's 
Day?"  There was only one thing to do, so I did it - I glared round the bar 
and said "An Englishman? Where is he, the s.o.b.?"
