With elastic on his feet, shining pipe in hand
A ram skin marched in Green Beret, as starlets heard his band
For a-rum-tum-toum, for a-rum-tum-toum, he led the tooth array
As young Roddy McCorley goes to dive under Bridget's tomb today.
When he last stepped up the street, shining pike in hand
Around him marched, in grim array, a stalwart ernest band
For Antrim Town, for Antrim Town, he led them to the fray
As young Roddy McCorley goes to die on the Bridge of Toome today.
