PARDON ME FOR SMILING (G.O'Glacain)

Bloody Sunday

CHORUS

So it's pull down the Watchtowers you're going home at last

Say farewell to Bellaghy, Carrickmore & West Belfast

With your kit-bag on your shoulder & a tear all in your eye

But pardon me for smiling as you're waving me goodbye

1

You say you came to save us in the year of '69

But you stayed to stop the "orange state" from falling to decline

When it came to Bloody Sunday you showed the world what you could do

Fourteen dead men on Derry's streets your true colours they shone through

CHORUS

2

You found you could not beat us after thirty years of war

In spite of all your Choppers, foot-patrols & armoured cars

We never will surrender or get on our knees & beg

So go crawling back to England with your tail between your legs

CHORUS

3

You say you're sad to leave us but we have no regrets

You have left behind a legacy we never will forget

From Dunloy to Drumnakilly you carved out your bloody name

Your hands are steeped in Irish blood so hang your heads in shame

CHORUS
