The Irish Brigade No.2

There’s an Island on earth, which clearly has shown,
By the sad and late battle fought at Bull-Run,
That will lend us a hand, in this hour of need,
And restore us peace, with the greatest of speed.
And restore us peace, with the greatest of speed.

Say: which is the Island to give us such aid?
Or that will give us an intrepid Brigade?
’Tis the Gem of the sea—the west of john bull—
Which, from Secession’s head, Jeff Davis will pull.
Which, from Secession’s head, Jeff Davis will pull.

Its Brigade is now ready to march from York,
Straightway to the battle-field to do such work,
Led on by the undaunted General Shields,
Never more to return till Jeff Davis yields.
Never more to return till Jeff Davis yields.

Say: will it succeed in giving such relief.
Or be sure to arrested[?] Floyd the Cun-Thief?
Yes, yes; it will quickly restore us to peace;
It can do so, we know, with the greatest of ease.
It can do so, we know, with the greatest of ease.

As an instance of this, we’ll cite: Fontenoy!
The mention of which gives Irish hearts joy!
Next in importance, the Battle of Bull-Run,
And Memorable Siege of sweet Lexington.
And Memorable Siege of sweet Lexington.

Then, cheer up! Union hearts, do not despair?
While Erin is with us, we’ve nothing to fear;
With Shields as a Genera, ’twill e’er prove true
To the Home of the Free—the Red, White, and Blue!
To the Home of the Free—the Red, White, and Blue!
