  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7 pmcgrath

    I have had no luck either - can't find anything in the search engines - which is really surprisng
    Its been played yesterday and today on Dempsey Today FM show
    I suspect people are becoming more aware of it as the days pass
    even www.thepeoplesrepublicof has no mention of it - !

    Can anyone help ?

    OK found a thread in the forum - heres a copy of the lyrics ... seems as though the song has been around for a while !!

    Have you seen the young man
    The drunken oul lout
    Roaring and bawling
    And spilling his stout
    And in everyone's business
    You'll foresee his snout
    Down in Cork he'd be known as a langer

    A langer...
    A langer...
    In Cork he'd be known as a langer

    And our hero Roy Keane
    Footballer supreme
    The finest this country and Man U's ever seen
    And we'd have won the World Cup
    But Mick McCarthy fffouled up
    Roy was dead right to call him a langer

    A langer...
    A langer...
    Roy was dead right to call him a langer

    In 2005
    Culture will thrive
    All along the green banks of the Lee (oh good man George)
    But no matter what
    When you arrive on the yacht
    We'll tolerate absolutely nobody acting the langer
    (Certainly not in Crosshaven)

    There'll be nobody acting the langer

    So three cheers for Roy Keane
    He's back wearing the green
    Ah what more could you ask him to do
    So forget all the press
    And the whole bloody mess
    They're only a big shower of langers

    They're only a big shower of langers.

    So there was me song
    I didnt keep you too long
    For now we all know one word of Cork slang
    And while there's meat on me bones
    I hope I'll never be known
    As a typical home grown Cork langer

    As a typical home grown Cork langer

    As a typical home grown Cork langer

    Isn't 'langer the only word of Cork slang ever?

    I was minding my own biz driving when it invaded my space via the Cork opt-out on Radio 1.

    Christ! If thats what the natives think is good music then I'm glad to be a Deice boy! (by adoption)

    What a crap song, I've heard it twice now and it only gets more irratating. But, if that fool Eamon can make it to No 1, I'm sure it won't be long till the Langer song gets there too :D
