Is this another version of ‘the bold grenadier’???
If the Pogues had written a follow up to this song, the UN-gentlemanly soldier would have died a horrific death. And the gal woulda turned intoa badass drinking girl who went on to have a bar named after her.
this is an English tune fool
was socky in the pogues!?
Sorry to tell you but it’s an English song . Which is why McGowen is using a gruff Cockney accent, I suppose.
1:12 and 1:32 is that tutter from bear in the big blue house singing? hahah just kiddin
God this song is fun to sing at reenactments!
I love that they use the tune from the British Grenadiers.
Wow that is such a monty python accent.
God bless Shane and the the pogues.
this is my true irish roots in song. i love it!! god love the irish!!!
i think the song you’re thinking of is Thousands are Sailing its my favourite song by them i think
Gotta love the lyrics brilliant
love the pogues!
he sounds like someone off monty python at 1:36
Monty Pythons Holy Grail-Doune Castle- “your mother was a gentile anglo-saxon hamster”
i think youre making a big things and out something that doesnt matter, if you speak to shane and he has made it clear he considers himself Irish, which he probably does, then that is that. Its pointless to argue on the internet. The Pogues are an Angalo-Irsh band, everyone knows it so it does not matter.
It may not matter to you but it does to Shane. He is Irish, from Irish parents born into an Irish family but born in Kent over Christmas when they were visiting relatives. I take it you woulnd’t deny black people born in the US their African roots and heritage ?
