Black And Tans, The

1)  I was born in the Dublin streets where the Loyals run the beat,
And the loving English feet they walked all over us, 
And every single night, when me Da come home tight
He’d invite the neighbors outside with this chorus.

Chorus:  Come out you Black and Tans
                Come out and fight me like a man
                Show your wife how you won metals down in Flanders
                Tell her how the IRA made you run like hell away,
                Through the green and lovely lanes of Killasandra.

2)  Come tell us how you slew, those brave Arabs two by two,
Like the Zulu they had spears and bows and arrows,
How you bravely you faced one, with your sixteen pounder gun
And you frightened them damb natives to their marrow.

3)  Come sit and do tell, how you slew the great Parnell,
When you fought them well and truly persecuted,
Where are the smears and jeers that you loudly let us hear
When our leaders of sixteen were executed.

4)  Well the time is coming fast, and it might be here at last,
When you lift your kilts and curtsy down before us,
And if there be a need, may our children say, “Godspeed!”
And their raffles sing this song, verse chorus.
