as Gaeilge by The Rubberbandits. The English lyrics are the original and are not a word-for-word translation of the Irish version. For example, the lines “I float just like a butterfly,I sting just like a bee” in Irish translatate to “I’m as strong as Cú Chulainn, as agile as Finn McCool”!

The Rubberbandits are a comedy hip-hop duo from Limerick, Republic of Ireland. They were formed by Blindboy Boatclub (real name Dave Chambers) and Mr Chrome (sometimes Bobby Chrome; real name Bob McGlynn).

The duo also released a video for the Irish language version of the song, “Ba Mhaith Liom Bruíon le d’Athair”, which received almost a million views.

Oh baby you're so beautiful
I wanna be your man
I wanna kiss you lot of times
And hold your fuckin' hand

But your father doesn't like me
Your father don't approve
We'll ask him if he'll fight me
Cause I'm in love with you

Roxanne, I wanna fight you father!
Roxanne, I wanna fight you father!

(Uh) Cause I'm a black belt in karate
And a master of Kung-Fu
And I'll kick his fuckin' teeth in
Just to prove my love for you

Cause your big fat fuckin' father
He said he wants it all resolved
Your big fat fuckin father
He shouldn't got himself involved

Cause I float just like a butterfly
I sting just like a bee
Baby you won't find another guy
That loves you more than me

Roxanne, I wanna fight you father!
Roxanne, I wanna fight you father!

Do he know how much I love you
Do he know the things I'd do (uh)
And do he know I sold his hub caps (yea yeah)
Just to pay for your tattoo?

Well your daddy said he'd suss me out
He says I'll break your heart
But if your daddy had a busted mouth
He wouldn't be so smart

Now you can bet your life
I'm gonna to put him in his place
I wanna take a Stanley knife
And open up his face

Roxanne, I wanna fight you father!
Roxanne, I wanna fight you father!
