Wolfe Tones – Go On Home British Soldiers lyrics

Go on home British soldiers, go on home,
Have you got no fucking homes of your own?
For 800 years, we've fought you without fear,
And we'll fight you for 800 more.

[Verse 1]
If you stay British soldiers, if you stay,
You'll never ever beat the IRA
For the fourteen men in Derry
Are the last that you will bury
So take a tip, and leave us while you may.


[Verse 2]
We're not British, we're not Saxon, we're not English,
We're Irish, and proud we are to be!
So fuck your Union Jack, we want our country back,
We want to see old Ireland free once more.


[Verse 3]
Well, we're fighting British soldiers for the cause,
We'll never bow to soldiers because:
Throughout our history, we were born to be free,
So get out, British bastards, leave us be.
