Sunday Bloody Sunday

Lennon & Yoko Ono

Well it was sunday
bloody sunday
When they shot the people there
The crys of thirteen marty martyrs
Filled the free derry air.
Is there any one among you
Dare to blame it on the kids?
Not a soldier boy was
bleeding

When they nailed the
coffin lidds!

Sunday bloody sunday
Bloody sundayís the day!

You claim to be majority
Well you know that itís a lie
Youíre really a minority
Oh this sweet emerald asle.
When Stormont bans
our marchers

Theyíve got a lot to learn
Internment is no answer
Itís those motherís turn
to burn!

Sunday bloody sunday
Bloody sundayís the day!

You anglo pigs and scotties
Sent to colonize the north
You wave your bloody
Union Jacks
And you know what itís worth!
How dare you hold on to ransom
A people proud and free
Keep ireland for the irish
Put the english back to sea!

Sunday bloody sunday
Bloody sundayís the day!

Yes itís always bloody sunday
In the concentration camps
Keep Falls and roads free forever
From the bloody english hands

Repatriate to britain
All of you who call it home
Leave ireland to the irish
Not for London or for Rome!

Sunday bloody sunday
Bloody sundayís the day!
