Lyrics for Northern Ireland: Everywhere We Go. [Willie Drennan Ulster Folk Band]





Song for Northern Ireland  [Words: Willie Drennan]

Tyrone, Londonderry, Antrim and Down

Armagh, Fermanagh and Belfast Town



Around this world we’ll sing out loud

We’re the Ulster people true and proud

We’re Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland.

From the Shores of Mourne to the Banks of Foyle

The Loughs of Erne to the Sea of Moyle

From Belfast Lough to beyond Lough Neagh

We’re the Ulster people all the way.


British Champions ’84  [Words: Willie Drennan]

The history books all tell the story

Tell the story of the glory

The glory of Northern Ireland’s past

I’ll tell you now the glory will last

For I hear the roar from days of yore

British Champions ‘84

No matter how many goals you score
 We're British Champions evermore.





My Aunt Jane    [Adapted from traditional by Willie Drennan]

My Aunt Jane she tuk me in and gien me tay oot her wee tin.

Half a bap wae sugar on the tap and three black balls fae her wee shap

My Aunt Jane she tuk me in and gien me tay oot o her wee tin

And you wonder why I am so proud, you wonder why I sing so loud

For my Aunt Jane she says to me no matter where yer goin to be

We are the people true and proud so sing with pride and sing out loud

Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland

Aye we’re the people true and proud so sing with pride and sing out loud

Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland.



My Aunt Jane says drink yer tay and sing out til yer dying day

And you wonder why I am so proud, you wonder why I sing so loud

For my Aunt Jane says home or away

It’s Northern Ireland all the way

We are the people true and proud so sing with pride and sing out loud

Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland

Aye we’re the people true and proud so sing with pride and sing out loud.

Northern Ireland x 4







The Ulster Boy  [Anonymous]

Give me an Ulster boy who knows how to walk

Give me an Ulster Boy who knows how to talk

Give me an Ulster Boy who beats his drum

For at least you know where he comes from.



There are sailor boys on the seven seas

Lumberjacks up in their trees

Film stars in their flash sports cars

And astronauts on their way to Mars.



There are men over in Paris, France

Who know all about sweet romance

They know how to wine and how to dine

How to make a woman feel oh so fine.



The all-American boy with his big hat

With his big wallet and his big chat

He knows how to live the real good life

You could be his fine little wife.



There are men in India and Pakistan

Men in China and Japan

Men in Brazil and Peru

They know what to do let me tell you.

All over this world you could find a man

To give you sweet loving as best he can

All over this world you could find a lad

To love you through the good and the bad.





SPIRIT OF THE BANN   [Words: Willie Drennan]

O glorious sight and sheer delight

As Ulster makes its stand

You’ll hear the roar from days of yore 

 For Northern Ireland

Each dawning day we arise to say

We’re of the Ulster Clan

You’ll hear us roar for evermore  

 For Northern Ireland.



As the river flows the spirit glows

Thru Ulster’s green heartland

To the ocean shore right thru the core        

Of Northern Ireland.

From the fountain up in the mountain

It flows in full command

The Bann will pour for evermore          

 For Northern Ireland.



My Aunt Jane     [Adapted from traditional by Willie Drennan]

My Aunt Jane she took me in and gave me tea out o her wee tin

And you wonder why I am so proud, you wonder why I sing so loud

For my Aunt Jane she says to me no matter where you’re going to be

We are the people true and proud so sing with pride and sing out loud.
