Ancestral Voices and I'm Listening

We're doin' alright
in this little land
we stole from the Maoris

ancestral Irish voices
raw, self-mocking, tough

when things got rough
they didn't make a song
and dance of it

they laughed, got drunk,
they called a spade
a spade and when I wanted

praise, why, you're the girl
your mother forgot to drown
was good enough.
