Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Songs you sang at the Getaway
Well, I realize I'm over a decade late, but I just found this and I need to correct the lyrics given here as my song "Grania." What MMario posted in 2003 is inaccurate. The second part of the first verse is:
        Yet you dare to claim my land with your laws and your demands,
        and you smite us like a galley smites the foam.
        Know your place, my lady Bess;
        who are you to dispossess Irish chieftains
        from their fathers' fathers' home?

And in the second verse it should be "in Connaught I am queen," not "in Connaught Grania's queen."

Thank you.
