Metal Man Video Shoot info – Sunday 27 November 2016

DATE: Sunday 27 November 2016


TIME 12 NOON to 3PM approx ( You can arrive at different times within this period to suit, but let us know, please)

Hi all, and thanks for checking out this post. The plan for our “Metal Man” video shoot is as follows:

We meet at 12 noon Sunday 27 Nov at the “Waiting on the Shore” statue in Rosses Point. You can park in the RNLI car park there.


PLEASE EMAIL, TEXT 087 9249282 OR MESSAGE EDDIE ON FACEBOOK to confirm you will be there as it will be very useful for us to have numbers and a schedule for shooting everyone’s part!

We plan to shoot close up videos of volunteers of all ages, lip-syncing to the song Metal Man, from our new CD “Why Us?” – soundcloud secret streaming link here

Here are the lyrics below, as it might be useful to familiarise yourself with the song – pick a verse and get familiar with it. We will film people lip-syncing a verse of your choice, and then pick people’s best lines in the final edit. With your help, we hope to make this a Sligo classic!

DRESS CODE- whatever you like, but a nautical theme (even a sailors cap) would work well. Feel free to dress up as much or as crazy as you like!

Any questions, email us or call Eddie 087 9249282


words and music by Eddie Lee and David Lyttle

Born in eighteen twenty-one

One of four strong metal sons

Standing twenty five feet high

Watch the Sligo tides go by

Metal Man, Metal Man


Two young brothers lost somehow

To this day the’ve not been found

Some say one’s in Sydney Bay

Lizard Island, Mandalay

(Well) either way his life is done

Metal life, lost so young

Ronnie Drew stole the other one


If only you could sail away

Around the isle to Tramore Bay,

You would see your brother guide

Ships that visit with the tide

Metal men, brothers, friends


A lantern blinks to light the way

With your back to Knocknarea

From Coney Island we watched you

From Memory Harbour they did too

Metal Man, Metal Man,

Looking for your guiding hand


Looking east to Rosses Point,

Where John Black built Elsinore,

Is it true they haunt the place,

Those smugglers who fell from grace?

Do metal men have metal ghosts?

I’ve been told there’s metal souls.


Metal Man, Metal Man, Metal Man etc etc
