Dedicated to the Legend from Tipperary- Shane Long

When we talk of the legends who wore the green

They’ll say cascarino and quinner and keane

But there’s one other striker that’s worthy of song

The gortnahoo legend tipp rary’s shane long

Wrap him up in the green shirt of Ireland

There’s no better player to be seen

See all his team mates his boys in green mates

Shane long gives it all when he’s wearin the green

He played for tipp rary in  gold and in blue

And took pride in  his parish of gortnahoo

With hurley in hand he could never do wrong

The premier county means a lot to shane long

Wrap him up in the green shirt of Ireland

There’s no better player to be seen

See all his team mates his boys in green mates

Shane long gives it all when he’s wearin the green

When your back’s to the wall and you need an oul goal

There’s a lad who gives heart a lad who gives soul

His never gives up and his spirit is strong

Three cheers for old Ireland three cheers for Shane Long

Wrap him up in the green shirt of Ireland

There’s no better player to be seen

See all his team mates his boys in green mates

Shane long gives it all when he’s wearin the green

When we talk of the legends who wore the green

They’ll say cascarino and quinner and keane

But there’s one other striker that’s worthy of song

The gortnahoo legend tipp rary’s shane long

Wrap him up in the green shirt of Ireland

There’s no better player to be seen

See all his team mates his boys in green mates

Shane long gives it all when he’s wearin the green

Wrap him up in the green shirt of Ireland

There’s no better player to be seen

See all his team mates his boys in green mates

Shane long gives it all when he’s wearin the green
