Celts And Their Germanic Cousins

clancy olafferty

Now DNA proves there be a clear connection

The Celts and the Germanics are cousins, they reckon

And if this song weren’t written by a beer guzzlin’  kraut chompin’  German,

then I’m wrong….

Sure an’ by gory it must have been written by a potato chompin’

Whiskey slurpin’  Eireman.

(Probably named  Murphy)

Side By Side

1927

“Oh we ain’t got a barrel of money
Maybe we’re ragged and funny
But we’ll travel along, singin’ a song side by side
Well, We don’t know what’s comin’ tomorrow
Maybe it’s trouble and sorrow but we’ll travel  along
Singin’ our song, side by side

Through all kinds of weather what if the sky should fall
Just as long as we’re together it doesn’t matter at all
When they’ve all had their quarrels and parted
We’ll be the same as we started
Just travellin’ along, singin’ a song, side by side”

                                                        —Gus Kahn
