100 More Left Today Song By Mick Higgins. This song is part of the 2013 songwriting contest. It's about emigration from Ireland today because there's no work to be had in Ireland. Mick emigrated to Malta many years ago and is quiet happy and settled. He's the President of the Irish Maltese Circle which started last year and at moment he is up to his eyes arranging  the first ever St Patrick's Day parade to be held in Malta.

 one hundred  more left  today.
with no future,    how could they  stay,
cap in  hand and begging  bowl ,
a  lifetime on the dole is all
we could offer them today
 
irish men and women in their prime
working hard to make a living was their  crime,
but the banks that we own stloe away their homes ,
one hundred more left today.
 
one hundred more left today
packed their bags and moved away
their talent and education
has been lost to the nation.
one hundred more left today.
 
cheating bankers, and men of greed,
has brought our country to it's knees
to cheat and steal is a crime
but they'll not serve any time
one hundred more left today.
 
it's maybe time to change our constitution
to enact powers of repayment and retribution
retrospective legislation is
what we need to save the nation.
one hundred more left today.
 
we need men now of strength and vision
not a bunch of party serving politicians                                                                
men who will not follow party lines                                                               
and get back what yours and mine                                                                        
100 hundred more left today
 
our lives now will never be the same
with our children leaving on boats and planes
 to seek the jobs we lack
but they never will come back
one hundred more left today.
one hundred more left today.
a thousand more have gone away.

St Patrick's Day In Malta 2013
