Verse 

G 
I thought it would be real neat 
C 
I thought it would be real cool 
Em 
If I picked up my dad's guitar 
D 
And learned me some Irish tunes 
G 
I'd play them for a couple friends 
C 
At some little Polish bar 
Em 
A little 'Whiskey In The Jar' 
D 
I never thought it'd go so far 

Am                                D 
So why would you want to bring me down 
          Am                         D 
Cause I'm not from Ireland, I'm from Allentown 


Verse 
I learned something from an Irish girl 
She came to our second show 
That when an Irish girl has something to say 
She's gonna let you know 
She said she wasn't very fond 
She turned her volume up to ten 
I didn't fly across the Altantic Ocean 
To hear 'A Nation Once Again' 

But it's a song we had to play 
Or else the owner wouldn't pay 

G C 'Cause I'm almost, I'm almost Irish G D And I hope almost, is good enough for you G C And I'm mostly, I'm mostly Irish G D OK mostly I'm American it's true C D Maybe the little bit of Irish in me C D G Could be the little bit of Irish in you
Verse I'll admit to you my biggest fear That guy from Belfast will show up here Hey what's that flying through the air Oh, It's his glass of beer So Irish kids don't like these song So why do Americans keep em going strong You think this trad stuff really bores It's not my fault that you like The Corrs So I'm not a native Irish man I never really said I am I've got soft teeth and I don't tan So won't you give me something man
'Cause I'm almost, I'm almost Irish And I hope almost, is good enough for you And I'm mostly, I'm mostly Irish OK mostly I'm American it's true Maybe the little bit of Irish in me Could be the little bit of Irish in you
And real blood pudding makes me sick And Colin Farrell is a marginal actor, at best I finally found a place where I belong So let me sing the Unicorn...Song
'Cause we`re almost, were almost Irish And I hope almost, is good enough for you And were mostly, were mostly Irish OK mostly were American it's true Maybe the little bit of Irish in me Could be the little bit of Irish in you
