Khaki Clothes and Army Boots

Khaki Clothes and Army Boots             May 1, 2016


Khaki clothes and army boots kill the people on our street

The enemy came, they found out soon, Irish freedom no defeat

Go home to England, leave our land, take the planters with you

There is no welcome for you here in our country of thirty two

With the empires might you are selective, they picked you for their  fight

Killing Irish people as you creep the streets at night

Give a kid of sixteen years a gun to fight your war

Sign your name on the dotted line, see the world for sure

A product of England's failure will fail again for sure

On an Irish street you will face defeat, If you're lucky you'll go home

If your not you may say goodbye on an Irish street alone

The promise of new lands and sunshine, welcome to Ireland's shore

No golden sands, no beaches, you've been sold a dream for sure

Go home before it's over, Go home to England's shore

We all make mistakes in life, you've made one for sure

Take your Khaki clothes and army boots, return them to your boss

They may have sentenced you to death and they never gave a toss

Khaki clothes and army boots, kill the people on our streets

The enemy came, they found out soon, Irish freedom no defeat
