GUEST,Ginny Lyr Req: Scarriff Martyrs (24) RE: Lyr Req: Scarriff Martyrs 11 Oct 10

I just read your thread "Lyr Req: Scariff Martyrs from 9/2005. My father used to sing an old Irish song years ago. I was wondering if you have any information about it. I don't know the name of the song but the lyrics were...

When will me countrymen learn to be gentlemen?
When weill they learn to be noble and true?...

They will soon let their friends and their Saxon foes know
That the Irish are just like the wild blooming flowers, the faster you pluck them, the thicker they grow.

The last line seems to be from "My Dear Native Land" The song my father sang seemed more like a rebellion song. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
