Finn MacCool and the Giant's Causeway

Text only version


Ulster is the most Northern of Ireland’s ancient kingdoms. Its landscape is fabulously beautiful – it has towering cliffs and rocky hills, winding rivers and scooped-out lakes that look like they could have been made by the hands of slightly crazy giants.

There are many stone tombs here, five thousand years old, made of enormous boulders that could not possibly be lifted by one man, or even a whole family of ordinary men. For many years the local people have named them “Giant’s Graves”

Stories are told of one great Irish Giant, Finn MacCool, whose most fearsome enemies were the Scottish giants. Finn was so angry, and determined to get at them, that he built a whole causeway from Ulster across the sea to Scotland. He built it of unusual six-sided cobblestones, so they would fit neatly together like a honeycomb, and they made a very pretty pavement indeed!

One day he shouted a challenge to the Scottish giant Benandonner, The Red Man, to cross the causeway and fight him. But as soon as he saw the Scot getting closer and closer on the causeway, he realised Benandonner was much, much bigger than he had imagined! Finn skidaddled back home to the Fort-of-Allen in County Kildare, and told his wife he’d picked a fight but had thought better of it now.

Finn heard the stamping feet of Benandonner from Kilcock, and when those feet got to Robertstown, Finn had to stuff five pounds of moss into each ear. Red Man’s spear was as tall and thick as a Round-Tower, and he used it to knock on the door of the Fort-of-Allen. Finn would not answer the door, so his wife shoved him in the great bath with a couple of sheets over him.

Finn’s wife, Oonagh, thought quickly. She opened the door to Benandonner saying,
“Sure it’s a pity but Finn is away hunting deer in County Kerry. Would you like to come in anyway and wait? I’ll show you into the Great Hall to sit down after your journey.”
Oonagh invited Red Man to look around the room, and showed him what she said were some of Finn’s possessions.

“Would you like to put your spear down? Just there next to Finn’s” - It was a huge fir tree with a pointed stone at the top.
“Over there is Finn’s shield.” - It was a block of building-oak as big as four chariot-wheels.
“Finn’s late for his meal. Will you eat it if I cook his favourite?”

Oonagh cooked a cake of griddle-bread – baked with the iron griddle pressed inside it. Red Man bit it hungrily, and broke three front teeth. The meat was a strip of hard fat nailed to a block of red timber; two back teeth cracked. He was given a five-gallon bucket of honey-beer to drink.
“Would you like to say hello to the baby? Wait! - I’ll have to feed her first!”

Oonagh threw a loaf of bread to the huge baby in the bath-cradle and, peeping out from a huge sheet-like dress and bonnet was Finn MacCool himself, contentedly sucking his thumb. Benandonner said he wasn’t much good with babies. The honey-beer made him feel woozy, and he asked to go outside to clear his head.

Oonagh showed Red Man out, where the gardens were scattered about with boulders as tall as the giant.
“Finn and his friends play catch with these rocks. Finn practises by throwing one over the Fort, then running round to catch it before it falls.”

Of course Red Man tried, but it was so heavy he could only just lift it above his head before dropping it. The blow only ricked his neck - luckily the Scotsman’s head was very hard. But it was also full of good sense. He thanked Oonagh for her hospitality and said he would wait no longer, but return to Scotland before the tide came in.

Finn leapt from the cradle, thanked Oonagh for her shrewdness, and chased Benandonner out of Ireland. Passing Portadown, County Antrim, Finn scooped a huge clod of earth out of the ground to fling at the retreating Scot. The hole filled up with water and became the biggest Lough in Ireland – Lough Neagh! The clod he flung missed its target and landed in the middle of the Irish Sea – it became The Isle of Man!!

And both giants tore up the Giant’s Causeway, just leaving the ragged ends at the two shores! And if you go to the North coast of Ulster, or to Staffa, the nearest isle of Scotland, you may visit them today – the ends of the beautiful causeway that is, not the giants – those giants are long since qrvkrzja. pandora bracelets storein their graves!

Marine Corps Cadences

C-130 rollin' down the strip,
U.S. Marines gonna take a little trip!
Mission top-secret, destination unknown!
Don't even know when we're comin' home!
Stand up, buckle up, shuffle to the door,
Jump right out and shout MARINE CORPS!
If that chute don't open wide,
I've got a reserve by my side
(or, I'll be the first one on the ground)
If that one should fail me too,
Look out devil I'm a'comin' for you!
A kickin' and a jabbin'!
Punchin' and a stabbin!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

There was a girl who wore a yellow ribbon,
She wore it in the spring time in the merry month of May.
If you asked her why she wore that ribbon,
She wore it for the young Marine so far, far, away.
Far away, Far away,
She wore it for the young Marine so far, far, away.
Around the block she pushed a baby carriage,
She pushed it in the spring time in the merry month of May.
If you asked her why the heck she pushed it,
She pushed it for the young Marine so far, far, away.
Far away, Far away,
She pushed it for the young Marine so far, far, away.
In her house her daddy has a shotgun,
He has it in the spring time in the merry month of May.
If you asked him why the heck he has it,
He has it for the young Marine so far, far, away.
Far away, Far away,
He has it for the young Marine so far, far, away

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mission Top Secret, destination unknown,
We don't know if we're ever coming home.
Stand up buckle up and shuffle to the door,
Jump right out and shout "Marine Corps!"
If my shute don't open wide,
I've got a reserve by my side.
If that one should fail me too,
Look out ground I'm coming through.
Hookin and a jabbin,
Slashin and a stabbin.
If I die in a combat zone,
Box me up and ship me home.
Pin my medals upon my chest.
Tell my momma I've done my best.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I don't know, but I've been told,
The Marine Corps is mighty bold.
And up upon the bolden scene,
Stands the United States Marines.
Sound off 1 2,
Sound off 3 4,
1 2 3 4 United States Marine Corps
The only ones with the gut's to fight.
They fight all day, and stand guard at night.
Sound off 1 2,
Sound off 3 4,
1 2 3 4 United States Marine Corps
Now on land, sea or in the air,
They get the job done no matter where.
So when they come home from all the battles,
To show off the all their heroic medals.
The Marine Corps is the job for me.
Sound off 1 2,
Sound off 3 4,
1 2 3 4 United States Marine Corps!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mama, Mama can’t you see?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me...
They sat me down in the chair,
When I looked I had no hair
Mama Mama can't ya see???
What the Marine Corps’ done to me...
I used to drive a Chevrolet,
but now I march around all day
Mama, Mama can't you see?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me...
I used to drive a Cadillac...
now I carry one on my back...
Mama Mama can't you see?!?!?!?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me...
After I passed the really hard test...
They stuck a ribbon in my chest.
Mama,Mama Cant you see?
What the Marine Corps’ done to me...
I'm walkin tall and feeling good,
I'm doing things I never thought I could.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lil yellow birdie with a lil yellow bill
Landed on my window sill
Lured him in with a lil piece a bread
Then I crushed his lil f***ing head
Me oh my I am such a clutz
I missed his head and hit his nutz

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If I wanted to be a Doggy
Then I would've joined the stinkin' Army
If I wanted to be a Fly Boy
Then I would've joined the stinkin' Air Force
If I wanted to be a Swaby
Then I would've joined the stinkin' Navy
But I wanted a job that makes you lean and mean
Livin in the woods with my M-16, eatin hot dogs with pork and beans
The Marine Corps offered all of this
I said I wanted a job that gives me pride and joy
The Marine Corps offers all these things
Now the moral of the story is
When it comes to the Armed Forces
The Marine Corps has got'em all beat

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Runnin through the desert with my M-16
I'm a mean motor scooter
I'm a U.S. Marine
If ya see me comin you better step aside
Cause many men didn't and many men died

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mama told Jody not to go downtown
Marine Corps Recruiters are hangin' around
Jody didn't listen and went anyway
Now he is livin' the Marine Corps Way

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ain't no use in lookin' down
Ain't no discharge on the ground
Ain't no use in lookin' back
'Cause Jody's got your Cadillac
Ain't no use in feelin' blue
'Cause Jody's got your lady too

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

They say that in the Marine Corps,
The chow is mighty fine!,
Chicken jumped off my tray once,
And marched right down the line!,
Oh Lord, I wanna go home!,
Platoon Sergeant, won't let me go home!,
They say in the Marine Corps,
The pay is mighty fine!,
Give ya a hundred dollars,
Take back 99!,
Oh Lord, I wanna go home!,
Platoon Sergeant, won't let me go home!,
They say in the Marine Corps,
The women are mighty fine!,
Look like Phyllis Diller,
March like Frankenstein!,
Oh Lord, I wanna go home!,
Platoon Sergeant, won't let me go home!,

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Old Lady Johnson had three sons,
They were eighteen, nineteen and twenty-one.
Everything was fine until 'sixty-four,
When all three sons went and joined the Corps.
In nineteen sixty-five they went to Vietnam,
Well, they went there to fight the Viet Cong.
They fought them of by 'sxty-eight,
And then they had to fight the NVA.
It stayed that way until 'sixty-nine,
When Number One Son stepped on a mine.
Number Two Son got it that same year,
When he took a sniper round in the ear.
Number Three Son is back on the farm,
He checks the mail every day for his leg and his arm.
Old Lady Johnson don't smile no more,
She says, "Eat an Apple, forget the Corps!"
