There’s Still No one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

Words and Music-Corrigan Brothers and President Barack O’Bama 2012

Lyrics

My name is Barack O’Bama of the Moneygall Obamas

And Now if you believe the Corrigan Brothers

There’s no one More Irish than me

O’Leary, O’Reilly,O’Hare and O’Hara

There’s still no one as Irish as Barack Obama

Now four years have passed

Since he said Yes we can

But President Barack

Is still the man

There’s been the odd crisis

And lots of Drama

There’s Still No one as Irish

as Barack O’Bama

Toor a loo Toor a loo

Toor a loo toor a lama

There’s Still No one as Irish

as Barack O’Bama

He came home to Ireland

To Moneygall

In Ollie Hayes’s Bar

He was welcomed by all

Met Megan Smolenyak

Stephen Neill and the crew

And with Cousin Henry

Had a Guinness or two

The Irish in Beijing

And In the Sahara

Are proud to lay claim

To Barack Obama

In January of 2013

The White House will still

Be just as green

Just like the election

In 2008

And poor old Mit Romney

Well he’’l just

Have to Wait

Toor a loo Toor a loo

Toor a loo toor a lama

There’s Still No one as Irish

as Barack O’Bama

The Irish in Beijing

And In the Sahara

Are proud to lay claim

To Barack Obama

O’Leary, O’Reilly,O’Hare and O’Hara

There’s still no one as Irish as Barack Obama

O’Leary, O’Reilly,O’Hare and O’Hara

There’s still no one as Irish as Barack Obama

Toor a loo Toor a loo

Toor a loo toor a lama

There’s Still No one as Irish

as Barack O’Bama
