Just A Normal Belfast Dude

Just A Normal Belfast Dude                         July 10, 2016




Growing up in Belfast, living the life I thought was good

Happy days with friends, just a normal Belfast dude

Sometimes we watched Celtic with a trip to Glasgow by the Clyde

We wore our Celtic jerseys singing our songs with pride

Things changed, the army came here, there was trouble on the way

They said they came as peace keepers, we knew they were here to stay

My father was taken for an interview and never made it back

They never told us why he died, that night our family cried

Many people were taken, some never came home

Children were killed, some died all alone

Derry got hit by the same killing brit while carrying flags of peace

Fourteen died as Ireland cried, when will the killing cease

Six counties in the north of my island faced trouble on our street

No clothes for the ten men they killed, the Irish will never be beat

Our martyrs are high up above in Ireland in the sky

We still have unfinished business, join our cause, please ask why

Some day we'll have Irish freedom, we'll join hands with tears of joy

A country where everyone is equal, a country our children enjoy

No more we'll lose our people, live in peace to the very end

We will finally walk tall,Irish and proud, reach out and make a friend


Growing up in Belfast, living the life I thought was good

Happy days with friends, just a normal Belfast dude
