Thread Name: Muhammed Ali in Ireland
Subject: RE: Muhammed Ali in Ireland
The line is also used in the chorus of this song about Muhammed Ali.

It's be interesting to know if it was an expression already in use, for example in playground songs, before Ali applied it to himself. I'd suspect ot was - but now it's irrevocably attached to him.
