Every US presidential hopeful needs a song and Martin O’Malley is no different.
The Irish American politician and great-grandson of an immigrant from Maam, Co Galway, who became the third Democratic presidential candidate in the 2016 race on May 30th, has the Corrigan brothers of There’s No-One as Irish as Barack Obama fame to thank for the newly released He’s going to be president Martin O’Malley.
This Galway man will follow Obama, the song goes, and has the nous to go all the way to the White House.
The chorus runs: “Tiraloo, tiraloo it’s time to party, he’s gonna be president Martin O’Malley. Tiraloo, tiraloo let’s go on a trip with Martin O’Malley and his new leadership.”
It remains to be seen whether it will become the hit its predecessor did. There’s No-One as Irish as Barack Obama attracted millions of hits on YouTube and the brothers from Tipperary were invited to perform during the presidential inauguration in January 2009.
