DT Lyrics:





Subject: songs by Dubliners
From: Fedele
Date: 23 Sep 00 - 06:53 PM

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"
THE WESTS AWAKE - ???
FOR WHAT DIED THE SONS OF ROISIN (Kelly) - a poem, not a song
SCHOOL DAY'S OVER (MacColl)
HEY JOHNNY McGORRY (St. John)
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.

The rare old mountain dew is almost certainly in the DT as is the Nightingale Sing (it's a maid BTW not a lad). Im not sure about the others.

The words never a tear in his blue eyes comes into Roddy McCorley but that is not a sea shanty.

OK, I can't find the Real Old Mountain Dew - will try the other search later before typing up as I'm sure it must be here. Meanwhile,

Minor point (in PEAT BOG SOLDIERS): line 2:instead of "heath and bog..." I know it as "peat and bog..." Makes sense, doesnt it? By the way: although the Dublinners do the song, it is originaly not Irish. World War 1; I also know a German version (Wir sind die moor Soldaten..)

Greetings,Rob

Peat Bog Soldiers is from World War II. See this Wikipedia article with the words in three languages. -- RHaworth

Peat Bog Soldiers is not from any war. The concentration camp it came from was opened in 1933, as the Wikipedia article rightly states, and was for political prisoners, mainly communists and socialists, the first to be imprisoned and murdered by Hitler's supporters.
