A New South Side Irish Song For The Score

CHICAGO (WSCR) — The South Side Irish Parade was discontinued after 2009, but The Score 670-AM is doing its part to keep the tradition alive.

The local group Three Men in Kilts recorded a new version of the “South Side Irish” song especially for the score.


The song is a new rendition to the well-known ditty written by the Irish Choir – Tom Walsh, Tom Black and Terry McEldowney.

The chorus goes:
We’re the South Side Irish as our fathers were before
We come from the Windy City and we’re Irish to the core
From Bridgeport to Beverly, from Midway to South Shore
We’re the South Side Irish! Keep listening to The Score!

    True to the tradition, this new version is just as awful as the original. The melody is a nasal blend of nursery rhymes and television commercials. The lyrics are devoid of any cleverness, humor, insight, or story. They confirm a shallow philosophy of conformance to vain american life; like looking in the mirror and declaring the image great. There is nothing authentically Irish about this song. It is an effective substitute for sticking a finger down your own throat the morning after.

      Being the lead singer on this song I appreciate your comment . I ahve a couple of questions? are you a voice teacher, do you have a Grammy, because you really know your music.

  • Sean Thomas

    Nice post Kman. Remember life is too short to NOT be Irish. Enjoy your life loser.

  • Bob Connelly

    Let’s keep what we have until something better comes along. Let Dave Cody write a new song. Regardless let’s dwell on the good and pass on the non- good. Erin Go Braugh.
