Lyrics
:

Across the Irish border
And hidden in a car
Lies guns and ammunition
That were smuggled from Armagh

Well that's not right - and they should stop the fight
And they should sort it out - and they stop the march
And stop the shout

Well the Irish reb's a gunman
And his pistol's Russian grey
And when you ask who gave it to him He says "The U.S.A."

Well that's not right - and they should stop the fight
And they should sort it out - and they let them march And let them shout.

Kill it shoot it down
And if you bum it to the ground
Well if you kill it light the fuse
What's the point and  what's the use

(If you) Kill it shoot it down
And If you bum it to the ground
Kill it light the fuse
There ain't no point and there ain't no use.

Well Mr. Ian Paisley's marching
From Ireland to 'L.A.'
Now he's asking for some sympathy 
And guns for the U.D.A.

Well that's not right - and they should stop the fight 
And they should sort it out - and they  let them march and let them fight

(And if you) Kill it shoot it down
(And if you) Bum it to the ground
Kill it light the fuse
What's the point and what's the use

(And If you) Kill it shoot it down
(And if you) Bum it to the ground
Well now you kill it light the fuse
There ain't no point and there ain't no use.

Now the letter bombs are posted
And the booby traps are laid
And the British soldiers marching
They're marching to their graves

Well that's not right - and they should stop the fight
And they should sort it out - and they let them march
And let them shout

(Well if you) Kill it shoot it down
(And if you) Bum it to the ground
Well kill it light the fuse
What's the point and what's the use

(And If you) Kill it shoot it down
(And then you) Bum it to the ground
Well kill it light the fuse
There ain't no point and there ain't no use
No
