You Don't Realize It, But You're Tapping Your Foot.........





Well you walk into a city street, you could be in Poru
And you hear a distant calling and you know it's meant for you,
And you drom what you were doing and you join the merry mob,
And before you know just where you are, your in an Irish pub.

Chorus
They've got one in Honalulu they've got one in Moscow too,
They got four of them in Sydney and a couple in Katmando
So whether you sing or pull a pint you'll always have a job,
'Cause where ever you go around the world you'll find an Irish pub.


Now the design is fairly simple and it usually works the same,
You'll have ''Razor Houghton'' scoring in the Ireland England game
And you know your in an Irish pub the minute your'e in the door,
For a couple of boys with bodhrans will be murdering Christy Moore.


They've got one in Honolulu they've got one in Moscow too,
They got four of them in Sydney and a couple in Katmando
So whether you sing or pull a pint you'll always have a job,
'Cause where ever you go around the world you'll find an Irish pub.


Now the owner is Norweigen and the manager comes from Cork,
And the lad that's holding up the bar says 'Only Egets Work'
He was born and bread in Bolton but his mammy's from Kildare,
And he's going to make his fortune soon and move to County Clare.


They've got one in Honolulu they've got one in Moscow too,
They got four of them in Sydney and a couple in Katmando
So whether you sing or pull a pint you'll always have a job,
'Cause where ever you go around the world you'll find an Irish pub.


Now it's time for me to go I have to catch me train,
So I'll leave ye sitting at the bar and face the wind and rain,
For I'll have that pint you owe me, like I'm not gone on the dry,
When we meet next week in Frankford in the fields of Athenry.


They've got one in Honolulu they've got one in Moscow too,
They got four of them in Sydney and a couple in Katmando
So whether you sing or pull a pint you'll always have a job,
'Cause where ever you go around the world you'll find an Irish pub.

  1. We used to have a local pub that wasn't considered an Irish pub, but an Irish musician would come around occasionally, and the Irish proprietor would have a grand night of business, due to the followers of the lad with an ear for music.

    It's now closed. His daughter sold the business after he died; and a landmark of memories faded away like the sun on a cold winter evening.

  2. Rocky Road to Dublin gets the foot going too.
