Length: approx. 3¼ mins. Optional vocals (tenor), words by Stanley Murphy:
In my Irish Aeroplane is a gentle ditty, an improbable story of an Irish aviator turning his back on battle and flying all the way back from the front lines in France to his native Sligo in order to marry his blushing bride. The cover of the original sheet music shows an aircraft, similar to an Avro 519 or R: E. 7, flying the wrong way over astonished comrades on the ground staring skyward. Not exactly the propaganda typical of the period and may have roused a few eyebrows but from today's perspective - a song of eminent commonsense!
