Corrigan Brothers rewrite Obama hit to Celebrate Bruce Springsteen’s Irish Roots

They have reached over seven million you tube hits and charted all over the world with “There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama” and now the Irish Band , The Corrigan Brothers have re-written their hit to celebrate the news that Bruce Springsteen’s Irish roots have been discovered in Mullingar County Westmeath Ireland through his great great great grandmother, Ann Garrity who left Mullingar in 1852. Lead singer Ger Corrigan said “we will release the song and a video on July 16th,  a day before Bruce plays in Dublin Ireland, and we are willing to allow Bruce perform it with us if he can learn it in the next week or so”. The brothers who have just completed writing a soundtrack for the Olympia Films production of “George Clooney’s Irish Roots” have also re-recorded their Obama song for the President’s 2012 campaign and look forward to attending another inauguration as a guest of the President of the United States. They are currently recording their third album and preparing for a US tour in November.

You don’t believe me

It sounds like such Drama

But Bruce is as Irish

As Barack Obama

His great great grandmother

One Ann Garrity

Is from Mullingar

In the county Westmeath

 

Kelly and Murphy

McCarthy and Breen

Ahh there’s no one as Irish

As Bruce O Springsteen

 

He’s as Irish as Guinness

And as Galway Bay

As the new york Parade

On saint patricks day

as the Shannon the liffey

the boyne or the lee

or the lord of the dance

young Michael Flatley

 

 

from the lakes of Killarney

to Ballaghadreen

he’s Mullingar’s finest

Bruce O’Springsteen

 

 

He may have been born

In the USA

But the Mullingar blood

Pumps through his veins

One Westmeath town

Has Produced stars so big

The Dolans the Sprinsteens

And the Swarbriggs

Toor a looToor a Lingsteen

There’s no one as Irish

As  Bruce O’ Springsteen

 

Kelly and Murphy

McCarthy and Breen

Ahh there’s no one as Irish

As Bruce O Springsteen
