Paul McCartney

Give Ireland back to the Irish

Give Ireland back to the Irish
Don't make them have to take it away
Give Ireland back to the Irish
Make Ireland Irish today

Great Britain you are tremendous
And nobody knows like me
But really what are you doing
in the land across the sea?
Tell me how would you like it
if on your way to work
you were stopped by Irish soldiers?
Would you lie down do nothing
Would you give in, go berserk


Great Britain and all the people said
that people must be free
And meanwhile back in Ireland
there's a man who looks like me
And he dreams of God and country
and he's feeling really bad
And he's sitting in a prison
Say, should he lie down, do nothing?
Should he behave like a man?
