It sounds like a nice song but when played in a pub, the way the Irish Rovers usually did it, it can get pretty rowdy. It's a good old Irish Canadian drinking song.
Heh, no, I can truthfully say I have never heard it played in a bar. My loss, I guess. The only bars I now frequent play things like "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes."
When I was in college, in New Orleans, I was walking past a bar when they started to play "Dixie" and nearly got blown off the sidewalk. But that was long before "The Unicorn Song." Tempus fugit, ars longa
