The Rebel Black Dot Irish Song o' the Day

Dropkick Murphys, "Captain Kelly's Kitchen" from The Warrior's Code (The Last Angry Irishman)

Commentary: I cannot rightly say if the unknown words of the chorus are in the Irish language or are pleasant rhyming gibberish. I'm not picking on the Murphys, this applies equally to Bing Crosby's famous "Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral (That's An Irish Lullaby)."
"Come, single guy and gal, unto me pay attention,
Don't ever fall in love, it's the devil's own invention,
For once he fell in love with a maiden so bewitching,
Miss Henrietta Bell in Captain Kelly's kitchen.

"With me toora loora la, me toora loora laddie,
Me toora loora la and me toora loora laddie!…"
