Conor, Son of Ireland

McGregor ya Bhoy

Brought a tear to my eye

When you answered the last call

Of a dying Irish boy

McGregor ya man

Showed us you can

Stand up to your word

With the support of Ireland

Every young lad

Aspires to be you

They watch and listen

To what you say and do

My son awoke me

At half past four

With a gentle knock

On my bedroom door

Dad he said,

The fight is on soon

I jumped out of bed

With that feeling of Boom

He brought life to my being

In those early hours

And only because

That moment was ours

He waited all night

To watch your fight

He hung out the flag

But not to brag

Just proud to be

As Irish as me

We sat and watched

A moment of glee

Josie Aldo didn’t know

Who could have reckoned

Smashed with that mighty left blow

In the thirteenth second

Respect to you

For doing what you do

It never came easy

My son knows that too

Inspiration to the young lads

Of our Ireland

Who tonight and for always

Behind you they stand

Conor, will you back them?

Those young lads of Ireland

Who march on forward

Trying to find where they stand

A new approach

Has just begun

To create the great

In every Irish son

We would truly love

To have you on board

To give them the knowledge

That you can afford

To help them to find

Their own true niche

Not looking for money

Just McGregor’s own speech

If you tell them they can do it

You could help pull them through it

This darkness that shrouds

So many of our young men

Drugs, hatred and crimes

Masters of their times

Like the flowing of our daily tides

Delivers death, and too many suicides

Son of Ireland,

Your brothers await

For you to show them

How to Create their Great
