Wolfe Tones – Celtic Symphony lyrics

[Verse 1a]
It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na.

[Verse 1b]
I'm a sailor man from Glasgow town,
I've roamed this world around and around,
He's the meanest thing that I have found,
In all my days of wander.


[Verse 1c]
But I could see his evil eyes,
'Twas then he took me by surprise,
Take me to your paradise,
I want to see the Jungle.


Here we go again,
We're on the road again,
We're on the road again,
We're on our way to paradise,
We love the jungle deep,
That's where the lion sleeps,
For in those evil eyes,
They have no place in paradise.

Grafitti on the walls just as the sun was going down,
I seen graffitti on the walls (Up the celts, up the celts),
Graffitti on the walls that says we're magic, we're magic,
Graffiti on the walls
Graffiti on the walls
And it said,

Ooh ah up the Ra, say ooh ah up the Ra (x6).

[Verse 2a]
We went through each jungle deep,
For the paradise that we did seek,
Was no trip for the weak,
We're waltzing with the natives.


[Verse 2b]
From the Amazon to Borneo,
From Africa to Tokyo,
To the darkest jungles of the world,
But nowhere could I lose him.


[Verse 2c]
Around in circles every way,
He turned to me and he did say,
"I think your leading me astray,
I want your soul, me boyo!"
