The Pogues

The Pogues
Jack's Heroes (Feat. The Dubliners)

They wear green
And they are beautiful
And their hearts are filled with love
They're as pure as any lily
And as gentle as the dove
They'll sing and cheer in harmony
'Til their throats are cracked and sore
But there is no doubt
You'll hear them shout
When Jackie's heroes score

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

They'll come from Dublin
And from Cork, from dear old Donegal
From London, Boston, and New York
From anywhere at all
From Parramatta to Fermoy
Strabane to Skibereen
(And will) the shout go up
When the World Cup
Is raised on Stephens Green (yes it will)

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

And when we're there in Italy
On Sardinia's sunny shore
We'll be the boys you'll want to see
The boys you'll all adore
We'll play like perfect gentlemen
To win, to lose, to draw
For we're here to take the World Cup
To Paddy's shamrock shore

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do

Too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo), too-ra-loo (too-ra-loo)
And we'll follow Jack's heroes whatever they do
