There's No One As Irish As Barack Obama Says Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys



Did you know that President-Elect Barack Obama will not only be the first American President of African descent but he also follow in the footsteps of past Irish American Presidents as well. That's right, Barack Obama has some Irish in his blood - just call him Bádhraic Ó Bamaigh.

Barack O'Bama's great great grandfather was from the small Irish village of Moneygall and immigrated to New York in 1850. Here's more of the story from You Tube.



Some lyrics to No One as Irish as Barack OBama by Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys:
O'Leary, O'Reilly, O'Hare and O'Hara
There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

You don't believe me, I hear you say
But Barack's as Irish, as was JFK
His granddaddy's daddy came from Moneygall
A small Irish village, well known to you all

Toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a lama
There's no one as Irish As Barack O'Bama

He's as Irish as bacon and cabbage and stew
He's Hawaiian he's Kenyan American too
He’s in the white house, He took his chance
Now let’s see Barack do Riverdance...
The rest of the lyrics are here.

Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys tell us that they:
