That's the one alright, Noel. The treatment doesn't do a lot for the patient. But it's that good old song. Incidentally, there's another song to the same tune that ends in
'Once more we'll raise the Orange Flag
Over the hills of Tandragee'.
But sure it's only a parody.... the Fenian one was well established before the Orange one came out. However, who cares? The Orange one was probably the response of a a wee man or woman who liked the tune. And knew the idiom. And rose up in indignation and penned a rhyme. And it might only be what we know now as a 'slag' on a neighbour.
