The Tossers – Did It All For You lyrics

I left my home, and I picked up a gun,
Left the mountains and the valleys
And the linnets sweet old song,
In defense of Dublin City and
Our Rights defense, it's true,
For that is where we met,
And I did it all for you.

I did it all for you,
Oh I did it all for you,
Never a thought within my mind,
Not a thing I couldn't do.
I did it all for you,
Oh I did it all for you,
And now that it's done,
I just don't know what to do.

Now our town's become a city
And the dance becomes a ball,
And jobs become computers,
Which I cannot do at all.
Now we are old,
And our church's attendance is few,
And now it's gone and I'm retired,
Still I did it all for you.


Oh! You're dead my love,
And our family's gone away,
But so has the loss of privacy
And responsibility,
But this celtic tiger,
Rugged individualism,
I just cannot do,
Lord have mercy on you love,
My god, I did it all for you.


How do I take care of myself?
God, I never wanted to.
