Nina
Mark Westphal
The Hunger has come and will not leave
My fair city of Newry
A better life is what I seek
for me and my family

So I come with nothing, left everything
in a coffin ship is where I've been
My parents gone, but now its over
with the lady calling us in

A place where liberty is for the rich and poor
and a man can own his own land
Where men are free and there's plenty to eat
and you don't fear the knock at your door

No Irish Need Apply
It's been a bad year
No work for you, I tell you true
So get the hell out of here

Walking the streets, I hear the babble
"Watch out ya god-damned Mic
They're dirty, lazy and breed like cattle
and they're all the Pope's Catholics"

I've checked the mills, I've checked the stores
I've checked the factories
The answers the same, it doesn't change
We've got work but none for you

No Irish Need Apply
We don't hire your kind
Now if you will, hit the hills
If you don't mind

My kin fell at Gettysburg and Antietam
The wall at Fredericksburg did not discriminate
We were all Americans when we fought
with General Meagher and the Irish Brigade

The sign on the tavern door
Said "No Dogs or Irish Served"
They hate me and I can't understand
Cause I've never been there before

No Irish Need Apply
It's been a bad year
No work for you, I tell you true
So get the hell out of here

Oh learn something, all you Know Nothings
I tell you I'm a man
I love my family, I love this country
and I'll make if I can

Oh Ireland is a sad land
with no peace or liberty
but all men are not created equal
in this land of the free

No Irish Need Apply
We don't hire your kind
Now if you will, hit the hills
If you don't mind

No Irish Need Apply
It's been a bad year
No work for you, I tell you true
So get the hell out of here
