Auf Wiedersehen,Crossmaglen

ŠThe Irish Brigade


So Auf  Wiedersehen to Crossmaglen farewell to Carrickmore;

I`ve seen enough of Ireland boys and I won`t be back for more!

No I won`t be back for more!


The recruiting sergeant told me boys, how army life is fine-

But he did not mention the mortar bombs or those bloody Claymore Mines!


He told me of the German girls; the discos evert night-

But the only craic in South Armagh comes from an armalite!


Well I`ve spent some time on the Toombe Bridge line where I thought I knew no fear,

Then a van-bomb parked outside my Lisburn base and brought the barracks in around my ears!


So farewell at last to West Belfast: to the Markets and the Falls-

I quickly got the message there it was written on the walls (Brits Out!)


So all you young lads who in England be signing on the brew-

Keep well away from the IRA and they won`t bother you...
