The Lyrics

Poor old Gerry Adams... once feted at the White House, now spurned by presidents and senators. And all it took was killing the wrong man, and being imboiled in the odd £26m bank robbery.

The main part is sung by the man himself; the part in brackets by any of the people he went over to the US to visit, I guess
I went to see
George Bush and Ted Kennedy
To celebrate St Patrick's Day
They wouldn't see me
Why did they tell
Me to go to hell
Me? Telling me things like this:
U.S. of A
No longer likes IRA
Fighting a war on terror,
So no cash sent our way
They give me the runaround

I went to see
(Gerry Adams)
George Bush and Ted Kennedy
(We're wary, Gerry Adams)
To celebrate St Patrick's Day, they wouldn't see me
(Wary of 'bout everything you say)
But when I say, that
(What you tell us)
The IRA, has
(Is meretricious)
Nothing to do with this
(Honest? Blarney. Really, Gerry, that's all bullshit)

I cannot see
(Gerry Adams)
How killing McCartney
(We're tired of your sad scams)
Has turned everyone against Sinn Fein, especially me
(Sickly, slickly, quickly go away)
(You say it isn't your fault)
(The Provos robbed that bank vault)
Like they've run me around, and around, and around
(Honest? Gerry... not you)
Assuming the site's back up, you can listen to this here. Enjoy :-)
