pat mc Garry sang this song better than Ronnie drew. On rugby tour in Berlin he sang it with gutso. His intro twas in the year of 39 the sky wasfull of lead. (touches upper lip)was heading for Poland and paddy for holyhead.

The Germans completly missed the subtly but loved the singing. London Irish vets won and drink was taken
