Macklemore "Irish Celebration" lyrics

Irish Celebration

[Verse 1]I'm an IrishmanLeather weathered Irish skinBeard orange as the sunset over the flagIn the night sky we fly it inPride for the life we fight to liveHistory, I write with itSpit it with the dialectAnd this is a celebration of courseThe green, white, orangeAnd when they pulled up on that shoreFirst generation bornToast to those that made it on a boat to New YorkAnd when the English came, the colonizer cameThey filled up bottles of gasoline, turned 'em into balls of flameAnd hurled 'em to protect what's oursDon't touch these Lucky CharmsWhole bunch of Irish screaming "Fuck the London Guard!"Not dissin' London, it's bloody rawBut go against the Irish and get a bloody jawPreaching nonviolence but reminds of the scarsAnd the bias, put a pint up everybody sing a song

[Hook x2]We put our glass to the sky and lift upAnd live tonight cause you can't take it with yaSo raise a pint for the people that aren't with usAnd live tonight cause you can't take it with ya

[Verse 2]From New England to New BrunswickGalway to DublinA rebellious nation of freckled face hustlersHeart, blue collared workers and familyMy heritage, proud to be a HaggertyNow with whiskey in our veinsClaiming were the bravest menI drank Old Crow, but pretended it was JamesonDad sipped Guiness, I sipped Old English'Til he sat me down at 16 and said, "Boy, this is what a beer is"I put down the drink, couldn't drink like a gentlemanThat doesn't mean I can't make a drinking song for the rest of 'emChallenge us in football, yeah we might loseBut don't put us next to a bar stoolWe take the history, script it in songLight the torch then you pass it onThat's right I said, lineage through the rhythm we script it from the palmAnd we give til' Ireland is onBottoms Up

[Hook x2]
