Street Dogs – San Patricios lyrics

Two hundred Irish go into Mexico
To fight a battle of manifest destiny
Driven by their Catholic conscience
They chose to rise and do what's right
Joined up with the natives for the fight

Confused then torn by aggression
Born against a sovereign land
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios

Sick and tired of the anglo abuse of might
And of following orders from a bent U.S. regime
They joined ranks with the Mexican army
Red headed ones led by Johny riley
When you stand behind your principles
You never lose

Confused then torn by aggression
Born against a sovereign land
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios

Fight with Riley fierce and wild

Mirar aqui Rudy

Churubusco de el 72
No queridos en la corte marcial
50 colgados, 16 madriados
Portrados como trydores
Grito para ellos, grito para todos
Parados nunca calleron

So we celebrate Irish and Mexican unity
It was forged with blood during manifest destiny

Confused then torn by aggression
Born against a sovereign land
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios

Led by Riley fierce and wild
They paid highest price

El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios
El Battalion, El Battalion de San Patricios
