Free And Full Of Care




Free And Full Of Care               August 29, 2017







Children of the Gael, no retreat, we'll never fail

You'll find us everywhere, free and full of care

They tried to destroy our country

We're Irish proud and strong

you'll find us in New York, Toronto

You'll find us everywhere

Australia the land of the prison ships

We have made our future there

Hold your head up high, let others ask why

Stand tall, be proud, look them in the eye

No shame for being Irish, no shame for being free

The children of the Gael, no retreat, we'll never fail

The empires gone, the Malvinas, Gibraltar, that's their claim to fame

A peaceful man without weapons beat them at their game

Stand proud and tall, remember them all

They killed our leaders, like Cromwell did before

Peace be with you from Ireland, open freedoms door

We know it hurts when they hear our countries song

Soldiers fight for freedom, just love that Irish song

The places of hate in the fascist state

They came to our country with church and steeple

No justice in mind, just killing people

children of the Gael, no retreat, we'll never fail

You'll find us everywhere, free and full of care
