K:F Oh! me [F]name is McNamara, I'm the leader of the band, Al-[C7]though we're few in [F]numbers we're the [G7]finest in the [C7]land. We [F]play at wakes and weddings and at eve'ry fancy ball, And [C7]when we play to [F]funer-als we [G7]play the [C7]march from [F]Saul. {i}Chorus:{/i} {i}Oh! the [F]drums go bang, and the cymbals clang, and the horns they blaze away; {/i} {i}Mc-[C7]Carthy pumps the [F]old ba-zoon while [G7]I the pipes do [C7]play; {/i} {i}And, [F]Hennessey Tennessee tootles the flute, and the music is somethin' grand; {/i} {i}A[C7]credit to old [F]Ire-land is [G7]McNam-[C7]ara's [F]band.{/i} Right [F]now we are rehearsin' for a very swell affair, The [C7]annual cele-[F]bration, all the [G7]gentry will be [C7]there. When [F]General Grant to Ireland came he took me by the hand, Says [C7]he, "I never [F]saw the likes of [G7]McNam-[C7]ara's [F]band." {i}(Chorus){/i} Oh! my [F]name is Uncle Yulius and from Sweden I have come, To [C7]play with McNam-[F]ara's band and [G7]beat the big bass [C7]drum, and [F]when I march along the street the ladies think I'm grand, They [C7]shout "There's Uncle [F]Yulius playing [G7]with an [C7]Irish [F]band." {i}(Chorus){/i} Oh! I [F]wear a bunch of shamrocks and a uniform of green, And [C7]I'm the funniest [F]looking Swede that [G7]you have ever [C7]seen, There's [F]O'Briens and Ryans and Sheehans and Meehans they come from Ireland, But by [C7]Yimminy I'm the [F]only Swede in [G7]McNam-[C7]ara's [F]band. {i}(Chorus){/i}
