Oh, I come from a nation what knows how to write a song
Oh Europe, where oh where did it all go wrong?
Come on!

Irlande douze points

Drag acts and bad acts and Terry Wogan’s wig
Mad acts and sad acts, it was Johnny Logan’s gig

Shake your feathers and bop your beak
Shake ’em to the west and to the east
Wave Euro hands and Euro feet
Wave ’em in the air to the turkey beat

Irlande douze points, Irlande douze points
Irlande douze points, to the funky beat
Come on

G-O-B gobble B-L-E, yeah…

Hello ABBA, hello Bono, hello Helsinki
Hola Prague, hello sailor, c’est la vie
Auf Wiedersehen, Mamma Mia and God Save the Queen
Bonjour Serbia, g’day Austria, you know what I mean

Shake your feathers and bop your beak
Shake ’em to the west and to the east
Wave Euro hands and Euro feet
Wave ’em in the air to the funky beat

Shake your feathers and bop your beak
Shake ’em to the west and to the east
Wave Euro hands and Euro feet
Wave ’em in the air to the turkey beat

Irlande douze points, Irlande douze points
Irlande douze points, aha

Irlande douze points, Irlande douze points
Irlande douze points, to the funky beat
Come on

Give us another chance, we’re sorry for Riverdance
Sure Flatley, he’s a Yank and the Danube flows through France
Bloc vote, shock vote, give us your twelve today
You’re all invited to Dublin, Ireland and we’ll party the Shamrock way

Irlande douze points – Irlande douze points
Irlande douze points – Irlande douze points
Irlande douze points – Irlande douze points
Irlande douze points – to the funky beat
Come on!

Irlande douze points, Irlande douze points
Eastern Europe, we love you, do you like Irish stew?
Or goulash, as it is to you
(Irlande douze points, Irlande douze points)

Yes, it’s Bulgaria, we love you
Belarus, Georgia, Montenegro
Moldovia, Albania, Croatia
Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Macedonia

Don’t forget Turkey
Hungary, Estonia, Slovakia
Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegova
And don’t forget the Swiss – cheese!
