ADMIRAL WILLIAM BROWN

From a county Mayo town came a man of great renown

As a sailor and a soldier was none bolder

He went to America at an early age they say

As a cabin boy to sail the wide world over



Then adventure took him south to the De La Plata mouth

San Martin was on the route in Argentina

So three whaling ships he bought and Brazil and Spain he fought

And freedom then he sought for Argentina



Now Admiral William Brown you're a man of courage shown

And in battles fought the odds were all against you

But your Irish heart was strong and in memory still lives on

And in Ireland there are some that don't forget you



On St. Patrick's day it's told you had many victories bold

You defeated all invaders thugs and bullys

Then through the Pampas rose and you found a happy home

"Las Islas Malvinas, Argentinas"



He had heard of Irish hands in noble gallant bands

That helped to free the land called Argentina

He had heard with great acclaim the Patricios name and fame

When in 1806 the British came for slaughter



And to this very day in the Argentine they say

The English ran away from Buenos Aires

To the islands further down and they took them for the crown

"Las Islas Malvinas, Argentinas"



We remember William Brown and his land of great renown

He, invader of the islands from your country

When in 1833 were by pirates forced to flee

And in Ireland sure we know the story fully



And the people that went too to the Argentine when new

To escape the English laws and wars and famine

They had proved a loyal crew just like all the Irish do

"Las Islas Malvinas, Argentinas"



The old colonial days and cruel English ways

With her thunder plunder we will teach the natives

For the Brit
