The Lyrics

Another one with a 'local' theme. These ones about Northern Ireland are not my best work in terms of rhythm etc., but hopefully my bipartisan selection of in-jokes will compensate for that! Not sure there are really standard ways for spelling dialect pronunciations, but it should be fairly comprehensible anyway.
Hangman, Hangman
Houl’ on and give a pause,
I think I see my enemies comin,’
Ridin’ across the wall

Lads did ye get some U2 posters?
Get a little beer?
What are ye plannin' te bring me, my brothers
Why are ye so far out here?

I don't want no Michael Collins
Nor no Dublin priests
All I want is for tee keep my flaehg safe
'N' keep me lads safe out here

HANGMAN! HANGMAN! A crime from the Pope o' Rome!
Call the BBC 'n' everybody, the flag has been tuk from my home!
Nivver mind our silver, nivver mind our gold
All I want is tee tell everybody don't nivver tek away me Ulster pole!

Hangman, Hangman
Houl’ on and give a pause,
I think I see my enemies comin,’
Ridin’ across the wall

Lads did ye get some U2 posters?
Get a little beer?
What are ye plannin' te bring me, my brothers
Why are ye so far out here?

I don't want no John Calvin
Nor no Prod King Billy
All I want is for tee keep my flaehg safe
So stay on that side, cos I’ll kill ye!

HANGMAN! HANGMAN! A crime from the English Queen!
Get on the phone tee RTE, 'n' tell them just what I mean!
Nivver mind our silver, nivver mind our gold
Don't you ivver durr tek away this here Irish flaehgpole!
