Lol i understood the song just not what the hell the dude was saying at the beginning:

"Any messages for Niall and Amanda on their big day? Don`t be goin` f*in` doin` stuff on their own like one o` them couples like you know. An` don`t be afraid to have a few house parties even if there`s children involved.Sure I was reared in a house like that - drinkin` an` druggin` goin` on - it didn`t do me any harm you know."

Does anyone have the complete lyrics for this, right from the beginning of the video to the end? There are a couple of bits I don`t understand.

Gerry1of1 `Geographically known` is a meaningless term. British Isles has no official standing. Britain and Ireland is one of the preferred terms in bot countries, and Atlantic Archipelago is popping up too.
The truth is, the term British Isles is outdated, and silly, like certain race-related terms in the U.S.

Northern Ireland actually is part of the United Kingdom by choice. The majority of voting protestants (approx. 55-60% of the population) and a minority of voting Catholics (approx. 35-40%) wish the country to remain under British rule. Until such time as the majority opinions change, there will continue to be a divided Ireland, since there would not be enough emphasis to force a consensus vote: the attitude of the British Government towards both the Irish or Northern Irish hasn`t changed for 1,000 years.

Ireland is part of the British Isles. It`s one of a group of islands geographically known as the British Isles.

It is NOT part of Britain, if that`s what you meant.... well, Northern Ireland is though not by choice.

@handys003 Ireland`s not a part of the British Isles, and this is a novelty record, so don`t despair yet.

"Secret" was a mischosen word, I grant you. What I meant by secret weapon was one unique to the English. The French didn`t have them, nobody except the English had them.

Yep, my case is weak. I seem to have been misinformed.

See ya next discussion, eh?

Secret? How could they be a secret weapon when everyone knew about them and their reputation was itself a weapon?

It`s sort of possible that the finger-cutting happened, but there are no records of it, it wouldn`t have been crippling enough to make them a burden and there were no injured soldier`s pensions or a welfare state in those days anyway. I think it`s far more likely that any captured archer would be summarily executed. Prisoners were sometimes ransomed, but archers were commoners, so ransom would be very unlikely.

It`s from the 100-year war, where the French would take the POW`s who were longbowmen and simply cut off their index finger and their long finger and send `em back. without those two fingers, they were utterly useless as military personel and only took resources and lowered morale.

The backhanded V-sign was used as a taunt aimed at the French, basically saying "You haven`t got me! I`ve still got my two fingers left."

Similar, but without any sexual connotations. It`s been a gesture of threat, defiance and insulting dismissal for so long in England that no-one is sure of its origins. It isn`t the peace sign and it predates the peace sign by a long way. The peace sign dates back to WW2. The two fingered salute was recorded in use long before that.

The most commonly cited explanation dates it to the 14th century and archery, with the fingers being those used to hold an arrow to a bowstring, making the gesture a threat understandable to any European of that age regardless of language. That would explain why its origin is clearly English, but nobody knows for sure. Stories about French soldiers cutting those fingers off captured English soldiers are a dubious later add-on. Captured soldiers were usually ransomed or killed.

In Great Britain the `v` sign with the palm in is considered an obscene gesture representing defiance. Made into popular symbol of victory by Winston Churchill with the palm in and then the palm outward. My conclusion was he was aiming it at Germany with the palm inward and outward toward the allies.

Unintelligable :)

I recognise it as southern Irish and a quick look tells me that the Rubberbandits come from Limerick City, so it`s probably the local accent in Limerick City.

Hmm...they`ve released it on itunes and are hoping to get Christmas number 1 spot for a laugh. Better than it going to whatever is churned out from X factor, like it normally does.

Hahaha! They`re No. 2 in Ireland, No. 1 in the Hip-Hop category. Also numbers 5, 7 and 10.
