1. The opening riff still gives you chills whenever you hear it.

DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO-DO.

2. And no piece of music makes you feel more patriotic.

Not even Riverdance.

3. Or emotional.

4. In fact, you’re of the view that it should be the national anthem

All rise for our national anthem.

*clears throat* “We’re all part of Jackie’s Army…”

6. As a result, this is one of your most-watched YouTube videos 

And the first video you go to on match day.

8. You’ve listened to it so often you’re able to recite all of Jack Charlton’s parts

You, after 10 pints: “WE INFLICT OUR GAME ON THE PEOPLE”

9. And you’ve been known to lose your mind when it comes on at weddings

Ties and jackets off, lads.

10. You’re pretty sure it might be Larry Mullen’s finest achievement

He produced it, didn’t you know?

11. In short, it might just be the best song ever

Sing it loud and sing it proud.

We’re all part of Jackie’s Army/We’re all off to win the league/And we’ll really shake them up/When we win the World Cup/‘Cause Ireland are the greatest football team

<3
