Subject: RE: Brian Boru lyrics?
Thanks for remembering my work, but your memory failed you a tad. let me correct the lyrics a bit:

Crouched high in round towers against the return
of foreign marauders who p[illage and burn,
the monks of St. Kevin pray, each in his turn,
"When will God send us a champion-king?"
Around them their treasures of knowledge and gold,
the manuscripts thick with the riches they hold,
the monks raise a prayer that is desperate and old,
"When will God send us a champion-king?"
