Cead míle míle fáilte, you’re welcome to our door
Will ye buy a little duty free as you head off to the war?
There’s a special here on airplane fuel and like your foreign policy
Of invading other lands and states, it’s a ‘buy one get one free’
Don’t forget we’re very friendly, (let the Middle East know the score)
Sure we only take the few bob to keep the Merkelwolf from the door
The Bailey’s is on offer and like our own neutrality
When you buy a litre bottle, the country comes for free
For the CIA rendition flights our charge goes through the floor
(‘cause coming back through Shannon, you’ll be carrying a few more)
We’ve a three for two on waterboards, (that beats Guantanamo Bay)
Sure you know we love the watersports or anything for pay
With 2.5 mill soldiers invading each Airport Store
Can I hear the Celtic Tiger or the ISIS Lion roar?
“Sure it’s just to give a cuppa of Peter Barry’s tea
To our neighbour’s sons and daughters who are keeping us all free”
There’s always the begrudgers, they really are a bore
They question why these visitors are darkening our door
Don’t rock the Shannon Airport boat, we’re wise now to your tricks
Sure we need a few ‘aul war planes the economy to fix
While we look around at battles filled with human blood and gore
We wonder is ‘aul Róisín Dubh in it up to her core?
Sitting on the Airport fence is a policy bound to fail
But if you jump right over it, you’ll land yourself in jail
