Fedele Lyr Req: several songs by The Dubliners (14) songs by Dubliners 23 Sep 00

OK, I need lyrics for some Dubliners' songs. I'll try to tell what I know about each one. Please start a Lyr Add thread for each one you know (let's stop putting 5437 songs in ONE thread!!!), but kindly put a BlueClickyThing or simply write something here when you do that - if I'm not around for some time, maybe I can miss some songs just because I didn't know anyone posted the lyrics!
Please use standard DT format so to keep things in order.
So, let's go:
I'M ASKING YOU SERGEANT WHERE'S MINE- as far as I understood a soldier is dying and asking his sergeant about the adventurous life he was wondering about when he joined the army.
THE NIGHTINGALE - a soldier and a lad love each other, but the soldier is married.
THE MERO (St. John / Hughes) - Didn't understand almost anything! "I joined the transport union..."
PEAT BOG SOLDIERS - "we are the people's soldiers"
FOR WHAT DIED THE SONS OF ROISIN (Kelly) - a poem, not a song
BUTTON PUSHER (Kent) - probably the 60's or so, it's about the man, the well fed man, in charge of the terrible job of taking care of the button that can launch a nuclear attack.

Please tell everything you know about the authors and the song. And, by the way, was FREE THE PEOPLE written after a specific episode?
Ok. See you soon.
