This is the part I remember from grade school:
Mike O'Rourke left County Cork to sail across the foam
And now it's been a year since he got over here
One day from dear old Ireland Mike received a little note
They asked him how he liked it here and he sat down and wrote:
There's a typical Tipperary, a typical Dublin Bay,
A typical County Kerry in the good old USA.
Although you're many miles from where the shamrocks grow,
You'll find an Irishman wherever you will go.
Need the rest of the chorus and more verses. Anybody remember it?
