Traditional Irish Songs

Come all ye lads and lassies and sit you down with me
And I will tell the truth about a land that's dear to me
You've read it in the papers and you've seen it on TV
But I will spell it out for you, what Ireland means to me

I is for internment of the innocent and free
R is for resistance to the laws of tyranny
E is for the English who have torn our land apart
L is for the love of freedom in every Irish heart
A is for the answer we're all searching for
N is for one nation and an end to this long war
D is for the dream of millions longing to be free
That's how I spell Ireland, that`s what Ireland means to me

This land was once respected for its saints and scholars too
But now the bomb and bullet that's all that makes the news
I know that it's confusing and it's hard to understand
But I will spell it out for you by spelling Ireland

Repeat chorus
