Provo Birdie

On the last day of October in the year of 73

In Mountjoy jail three rebels were longing to be free

And from the skies surprise, surprise, an iron bird did fall

An lifted up the Provos high over the Dublin wall



And it's up and up and higher the helicopter flew

High over the Dublin spires and over the Liffey too

The length and breadth of Ireland, no finer sight to see

The day the Provo birdie released the Mountjoy three.


The screws were all astounded they knew not what to do

They just stood there dumbfounded as off our rebels flew

And in the jaol the traitors were shocked and quite aghast

As they looked up and noticed the Provos flying past.


O'Hagan, Twomey, Malan, God bless those gallant three

And Britain she is furious as off our rebels flee

But everywhere in Ireland wherever the news is heard

The people cheer the Provos and their marvellous flying bird.
