The grouse-hen nests in the Black Mill And I heard it nests in it still Don't sound the tune in Margaree Or you won't make friends easily Get over it, get over it There could be worse than chicken shit!

A fair women once told me, when I stepped at her door “Why can’t you quit from drinking, t’will kill you before long” And then I replied to her, would you sing me a song? Where all the men are drinking, a good beer ain’t a whore A throb is in my head My guts are on the floor Oh god never I swear Will I drink anymore? A throb is in my head My guts are on the floor Oh god never I swear Will I drink anymore? It’s Friday and it’s raining, I’m left without a job ‘Tis time to forget all this shit, meet the guys at the pub I catch up with McHalley, she’s already at three Tonight pints of Guinness and Newkie are on me! A throb is in my head My guts are on the floor Oh god never I swear Will I drink anymore? On our table pile up, many empty glasses I try to win a wet kiss from many ugly lasses The clock is close to three, there’s no one else around But me and all my friends: time for another round! (reload!) A throb is in my head My guts are on the floor Oh god never I swear Will I drink anymore? A throb is in my head My guts are on the floor Oh god never I swear Will I drink anymore? I wake in up the morning, all fuzzy, cold and sore I don’t know where the hell I am, must get out of this place I rush into the toilet; it’s the same as before When I look at the mirror, it’s the same familiar face A throb is in my head My guts are on the floor Oh god never I swear Will I drink anymore? So I bid you goodnight Oh good friends that you are And I’ll see ya for sure Tomorrow at the bar…

The Cabin 02:37
I'm out of work and want a change, got nothing left to lose I need to leave everything to help me clear my mind My spot in timberland and a few bottles of booze Is a great start for what I hope to find So you tried to find a way out, you were caught in the cabin You thought that you could escape but it was only a dream You were hidden in the forest hoping to find some peace at last But it got back to you 'cause no one could find you Trapped inside my shack, I don't know what I can do Is there a solution for my pursuit of happiness? Can't live like this anymore, need a helping hand, but who? To achieve my goal is hard when I'm a total mess So you tried to find a way out, you were caught in the cabin You thought that you could escape but it was only a dream You were hidden in the forest hoping to find some peace at last But it got back to you 'cause no one could find you My last chance is to hold on and keep my spirits high Going back to the woods might give me strength to move on Staying there by myself could not hide my destiny Anyway I'm sure that people won't know that I'm gone So you tried to find a way out, you were caught in the cabin You thought that you could escape but it was only a dream You were hidden in the forest hoping to find some peace at last But it got back to you 'cause no one could find you

I heard Jesus was a cool lad A peace and love kind of guy, it’s said He smelled of BO and of weed A smell that could have raised the dead He had twelve merry drinking pals Who loved a late boozy repast But every morning, quite hung over They swore this supper would be their last My God, Old man! Oh why have you forsaken me? We hoped to party until dawn But we're out of beer and it's only three! He and his buddies crashed a wedding Where all they served was water warm and stale Jesus winked at the bride and the groom And turned the water into ale My God, Old man! Am I really your true son? Cause you seem to me a bit stern And I mighty like to have some fun... Sanitas Bona! Sanitas Bona! His hot girlfriend was an ex-whore Who warmed the bed of many men in need She never caught anything itchy at her job And that was a miracle indeed My God, Old man! I read the jobs you had for me And I could not help wondering Can I really walk upon the sea? Because I'd like to spread The good news of brew the world around And it looks to me a whole lot cheaper Than renting a boat for a bag of pounds

Earning a living, paying the bills Is hard work but well you sure know how it feels But playing on stage with my brand new guitar My complaints don't go very far What is the truth and what is a lie? Should I shake the hand reaching down from on high? I can only go where my heart tells me to And that is the best I can do They may take our jobs away Lead us all astray Doesn’t matter anyway We’ll get stronger everyday Raise your glasses to the sky Raise 'em proud and high It's a song for you and I Let us kiss our woes goodbye Driving your car can irk you a great deal If somebody else is holding the steering wheel Even though this can be a shit of a ride It’s nice to have friends by your side They may take our jobs away Lead us all astray Doesn’t matter anyway We’ll get stronger everyday Raise your glasses to the sky Raise 'em proud and high It's a song for you and I Let us kiss our woes goodbye Johnny and Maggie and Sean! Clench your fist and carry on Raise your glasses to the sky It's a song for you and I Raise your glasses to the sky It's a song for you and I They may take our jobs away Lead us all astray Doesn’t matter anyway We’ll get stronger everyday Raise your glasses to the sky Raise 'em proud and high It's a song for you and I Let us kiss our woes goodbye They may take our jobs away Lead us all astray Doesn’t matter anyway We’ll get stronger everyday Raise your glasses to the sky Raise 'em proud and high It's a song for you and I Let us kiss our woes goodbye They may take our jobs away Lead us all astray Doesn’t matter anyway We’ll get stronger everyday Raise your glasses to the sky Raise 'em proud and high It's a song for you and I Let us kiss our woes goodbye

Olaf 02:43
En Tchéquie y'avait une p'tite girafe Qui avait reçu le nom d'Olaf Verte tachetée jaune, les yeux toujours en extase N'étant pas née pour un p’tit pain Elle s'est promenée aux quatre coins De la planète pour faire sa danse grivoise Un jour dans un party d'St-Patrick Elle a trippé sur la musique D'un band qui jouait du Flogging et du Dropkick Fidèle Olaf on espère tous ben gros Que tu t'emmerdes pas trop Dans le trailer tout seul, quand on va à nos shows Elle s'est souvent pété la fiole Sa corne ou une oreille qui décolle En dansant sur scène et en faisant la folle Mais elle a des chums qui sont de vrais experts Qui l'ont guérit pour pas cher À coup d'sableuse, de plâtre et de fibre de verre Là elle est en feu et peut enfin thrasher Sur scène sans rien s'arracher Fidèle Olaf reste toujours à nos cotés

He, by the bar, looking at me with deep blue eyes Oh what a feek, how could I turn him down? My mind's not clear, already drank a bunch of pints Oh what the hell, I'm outta town He's waiting for me to buy him a drink Still got some money but should I go through? Well it looks like we are in sync There might be chemistry so I could add a few Should I leave or should I stay, and live as there's no tomorrow Temptation or not only my heart should know How can I be sure if he's worth it? Right here right now there's a burning fire But there's my man waiting at home Can I handle my desire? Should I leave or should I stay, and live as there's no tomorrow Temptation or not only my heart should know My conscience is killing me (Carpe Diem) My conscience is killing me (Carpe Diem) My conscience is killing me (Carpe Diem) My conscience is killing me (Carpe Diem) Should I leave or should I stay, and live as there's no tomorrow Temptation or not only my heart should know Should I leave or should I stay, and live as there's no tomorrow Temptation or not only my heart should know

By a lonely prison wall I heard a young girl calling Michael they have taken you away For you stole Trevelyn's corn So the young might see the morn Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay Low lie the Fields of Athenry Where once we watched the small free birds fly Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry By a lonely prison wall I heard a young man calling Nothing matters Mary when you're free Against the famine and the crown I rebelled they cut me down Now you must raise our child with dignity Low lie the Fields of Athenry Where once we watched the small free birds fly Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry By a lonely harbor wall She watched the last star falling As the prison ship sailed out against the sky Sure she'll wait and hope and pray For her love in Botany Bay It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry Low lie the Fields of Athenry Where once we watched the small free birds fly Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry Low lie the Fields of Athenry Where once we watched the small free birds fly Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry

A bear there was (a bear!, a bear!) All black and brown Covered with hair With a good flair Oh come they said Come to the fair Come to the fair? But I'm a bear! And down the road From here to there Three boys, a goat And a dancing bear They danced and spun Up to the fair Oh look my friend There's a maiden here He smelled the scent In the maiden's hair She is so sweet So pure and fair He sniffed the air And smelled it there The maiden’s here With honey in her hair He is a hairy bear He wants to come to the fair I am a maiden fair With honey in my hair He's a dancing bear He wants to drink some beer I'm really standing here In front of a crazy bear Oh she's a maid, she's pure and fair She'll never dance with a hairy bear She'll never dance with a hairy bear He lifted her high into the air She called for a knight but he's a bear All black and brown and full of hair She kicked and wailed the maid so fair He licked the honey from her hair She looked so sweet So pure and fair Honey and gold In her long hair She is a maid And she is fair She doesn't care About a bear (a hairy bear!) Oh wait my bear Oh please come here I'm so lonely And not so fair Come to the fair With all your hair We'll have some fun And an affair He is a hairy bear He wants to come to the fair I am a maiden fair With honey in my hair He's a dancing bear He wants to drink some beer I'm really standing here In front of a crazy bear Oh she's a maid, she's pure and fair She'll never dance with a hairy bear She'll never dance with a hairy bear He lifted her high into the air She called for a knight but he's a bear All black and brown and full of hair She kicked and wailed the maid so fair He licked the honey from her hair Oh she's a maid, she's pure and fair She'll never dance with a hairy bear She'll never dance with a hairy bear He lifted her high into the air She called for a knight but he's a bear All black and brown and full of hair She kicked and wailed the maid so fair He licked the honey from her hair Oh she's a maid, she's pure and fair She'll never dance with a hairy bear She'll never dance with a hairy bear He lifted her high into the air She called for a knight but he's a bear All black and brown and full of hair She kicked and wailed the maid so fair He licked the honey from her hair She sighed and squealed And kicked the air My bear she sang My bear so fair And off they went From here to there The bear the bear And the maiden fair

For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green Oh. Paddy dear and did you hear the news that's going round? The shamrock is by law forbid to grow on Irish ground St. Patrick's Day no more we keep his colour can't be seen For they hangin' men and women for the wearing of the green I met with Napper Tandy and he took me by the hand He said : "How's dear old Ireland and how does she stand?" She's the most distressful country that you’ve ever seen For they're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green And if the color we must wear is England's cruel red Shure Ireland sons will not forget the blood that they have shed You may take the shamrock from your hat and cast it down the sod But 'Twill take root and flourish there, tho' under foot 'tis trod My father loved his country and sweeped from in 'is breast But I had one they died for her must never soul be blessed Most tears me mother shad for me, how'd bitter they had been But we have proved the traitors for the wearing of the green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green And if at last our coloured shirt be thorn from Ireland's heart Her sons would shame and sorrow for the dear old my wound heart I hear the whisper of the land that lies me on the sea Where the rich and poor stand equal in the light of freedom's day Oh, Ireland, must believe you driven by a tyrant's hand And see come mother's blessing from the strange and distant land Where the cruel cross of England shall never more be seen And in that land we live and die still wearing Ireland's green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green For the wearing of the green, for the wearing of the green They're hanging men and women for the wearing of the green

One day, feeling quite alone Wishing for a lass fair and gay I met an ugly crone Slowly comin' my way Her hair was long and white And her shoulders were all bent She was such a pitiful sight Mumbling to herself as she went I said : « oh my good lad, Will you give me a kiss? A groom like you I once had And love I sorely miss. » « If you kiss me, » I further said, « I will change into a lass With a fair and pretty head And a mouth-drooling little ass.» I thought I had nothing to lose To find out if her words were true And not some sick devious ruse But there’s one thing I had to do Daunted by this grim enterprise And dizzy with her reek I held my breath and closed my eyes And quickly kissed her on the cheek Where the hag stood moments ago Now was a girl young and fair Her limbs were white as snow And shining like gold was her hair Very soon we were groom and bride And we were giddy with delight Of having my love by my side Every day, and every night But soon she showed her black heart Always ordering me around Keeping me and my friends apart Growling at me like a bloodhound One day I was fed up And at last I walked out the door And since then raised a lonely cup For I had no friends anymore Leaving her, I did not regret For her breasts had begun to sag I wish I fled the day I met Long ago that crazy old hag One day, feeling quite alone Wishing for a lass fair and gay A young lad met an ugly crone Slowly coming his way…

about

"Electric guitars, bagpipe and whisky: Celtic rock as it should be"

Add to this banjo, accordion and tin whistle, and this statement sums up well Irish Moutarde’s debut album "Raise 'Em All". This album is a twelve songs party that perfectly blends together rock, punk, Celtic music, even metal! These musical styles are omnipresent, and the mix leads to heavy and rapid pieces or lively and bawdy Irish drinking songs. That's not to say that the guys (Oops! The lads and the lass!) can't turn it down a bit. There’re also some introspective and sweet moments, but not too much! Dynamic vocals, lots of melodies of Celtic influence and many known and lesser-known instruments make a debut album full of energy that fulfills Irish Moutarde's promise that no matter the day you’ll listen to the album, it’ll always be St.Patrick's Day!
