When President Obama comes back home to Moneygall

You heard it first here! Strong rumours of an Obama visit to Ireland in June this year - The Corrigan Brothers have written a song for the occasion and have sent a copy to the Taoiseach to present to President Obama on St. Patrick's Day in Washington.

When President Obama comes back home to Moneygall
 Will he stop off for a pint of beer
With good old Ollie Hayes
Or walk with Canon Stephen neill
To the Kearney place

Will his cousin Henry Healy
Take out the family tree
And tell him the whole story
Of his roots in Offally

Oh he’ll have an irish hooley
And he will have a ball
When President Obama
Comes back home to Moneygall

Oh music will be playing
Of that you can be sure
The Obama dancers
Will take to the floor

They’ll dance an irish  set for him
They’ll swing around the floor
And maybe our great president
Will join them for one more

Oh he’ll have an irish hooley
And he will have a ball
When president Obama
Comes back home to Moneygall

They’ll all come out to greet him
They’ll all come out to see
The man who touches all the hearts
With his humility

They’ll cheer with all their heart and soul
And they will make it known
That president obama
Is one of their own

Oh he’ll have an irish hooley
And he will have a ball
When president Obama
Comes back home to Moneygall

Oh he’ll have an irish hooley
And he will have a ball
When president Obama
Comes back home to Moneygall

Oh he’ll have an irish hooley
And he will have a ball
When president Obama
Comes back home to Moneygall

The Corrigan Brothers are indefatigable, indeed. Wonderful! And the brothers put you in the song, Paddy. How lovely.
