Well, we (The Buckaroos) are going to sing "Danny Boy" at both of our St. Pat's weekend gigs, but not without singing Robbie O'Connell's "You're Not Irish"[*] first, right before it in fact. Plus, we sing "Danny" a capella, and if I may say so we do sorta nail it.

We're also considering doing "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" for these gigs: it was written by a Liverpudlian of Irish extraction, and it is sort of a murder ballad....

[*]The chorus of "You're Not Irish", for those unfamiliar is:

You're not Irish, you can't be Irish, you don't know Danny Boy
Or Toora Loora Loora, or even Irish Eyes
You've got a hell of a nerve to say you came from Ireland
So cut out all the nonsense and sing McNamara's Band
