 once upon a time

Where are we today


Were you there- when the army moved in

Were you there- when you heard the bin lids

Were you there - when the first house burned

Were you there - when young Rooney died


Were you young- when the first bullet killed

Were you young- when the barricades arose

Were you young- when the Saracens charged

Were you young- when the Provos formed



Were you young- when bombs scares happened

Were you young- when bars were blown up

Were you young- when the peace accord signed

Were you young- when they told us all their lies


Were you there- When we voted in Sinn Fein 

Were you there- when we voted for change

Were you there- when  Mc Guinness walked with royalty

Were you there- when we realised we'd been fooled


We're young- though today it's our spirit that's immortal 

We're young- but remember it's not 1969 again

We're young- but all in N Ireland's remains the same

We're old and deeply saddened that all the dying was in vain
