There are only five songs.
1. I drank loads last night and I regret nothing
2. I met a lovely fair girl and she was fair and lovely
3. We will fight the Brits for ever and ever and ever.
4. I have left Ireland and shall never be happy again.
5. Those fucking fairies.

@ebel you can also mix most of those with 5:

1.5: i drank loads last night and then the fairies kidnapped me
2.5: i met a lovely fair girl and she was actually a fucking fairy
4.5: i left Ireland and shall never see fairies again (actually, they probably killed me and this is some kind of hell)

@meena
1+3: I drank loads last night and for ever and ever and ever
3+1: We will fight the Brits and I regret nothing
2+1: I met a lovely fair girl and I regret nothing
3+5: We will fight the Brits and those fucking fairies.

@ebel @meena 5+2: I met a fairy and she charmed me forevermore and was fair and lovely
(3+5 could also be about those fucking fairies messing with the Brits)

@ebel “I have left Ireland and shall never be happy again” are the ones that get me. And I am not even Irish

@ebel whoa whoa I just realized my favorite Irish song The Parting Glass is all five of those themes at the same time.
