Thousands are Sailing - The Pogues
The island it is silent now
Did you work upon the railroad
Did the old songs taunt or cheer you
What is the effect of emigration on the country of origin? What is the effect of immigration on the host country? Do you think most immigrants work (for example on the railroad, or as police officers) or do you think they take government assistance (dollars from the White House)? How quickly do immigrants assimilate into a new country: is it “months and years” or do their teardrops quickly dry?
