Undecided about the Presidency? This might help…

The Corrigan Brothers apply their lyrical curiosity to the seven candidates for the Áras. Well, we said it MIGHT help.

The Corrigan Brothers. They don't seem to like Gay Mitchell much.

WE WOULDN’T NORMALLY do this to you this early in the morning, but if you’re having difficulty trying to figure out who to vote for in the Presidential election, the indefatigable Corrigan Brothers have it all figured out.

You can listen to their new ditty, the Presidency Song, here.

Or if you are in a public place without your earphones, this is the general gist:

Na na na na na na na

Na na na na na na nee

Seven for the Presidency

What a game that they play

Mary Davis poster hey now

I just dunno what to say now

It’s like an ad for Special K now

Put the airbrush kit away

Young McGuinness met Mandela

When he meets the Queen he’ll tell her

He might meet Charlie and Camilla

Goes to show we’ve all moved on.

Davy Norris may be better Davy Norris may be better

Likes to write the odd old letter

Time to put that pen away.

Na na na na na na na

Na na na na na na nee

Seven for the Presidency

What a game that they play

Gallagher the Dragon, he

Had a Fianna Fáil pedigree

Let’s erase it from our memory

That was all in the past.

Dana loves the Constitution

All kinds of everything inclusion

Bet your boots she’ll put the boot in

If she’s not happy with the in-laws

Mitchell’s not like any other

A bit like Dracula’s young brother

He scuppered Cox, made Kenny schudder

But he loves the workin’ man.

Na na na na na na na

Na na na na na na nee

Seven for the Presidency

What a game that they play

Michael D just sits politely

In the background nice and quietly

He’s transfer-friendly or he might be

We’ll just have to wait and see.


Na na na na na na na

Na na na ….

(You get the idea – Ed.)
