    Wolfe Tones - You'll Never Beat the Irish lyrics Part 1

    In 1167 they came to Ireland on the make
    They were followed by invasions and by conquests in their wake
    The kings and queens of Enland made our land a battle groud
    They took our land by fraud defeat, by poison murder and decet.

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
    Ducking diving faugh a balla clear the way
    Diddily i del de di diddly idle do

    By the 15th century they held percariously to the Pale
    The invaders were more Irish than the Irish that's the tale,
    A fat greedy king called Henry
    His dick was bigger than his brain
    Imposed on us his Reformation
    Confiscations and usurpation

    You'll never beat the Irish
    No matter what you do
    You can put us down and keep us out
    But we'll come back again
    You know we are the fighting Irish
    and we'll fight until the end
    You should have known
    You'll never beat the Irish

    Then the virgin Queen elizabeth brought was and turmoil to our land
    She decimated Munster
    Scorched the earth and all at hand,
    then James 1st and Charles the mad
    Brought out other greedy bands
    They tool the land of Ulster
    Killed the Chieftains poinsend plundered

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
    Ducking diving faugh a balla clear the way
    Diddily i del de di diddly idle do

    Byfraud and defective titles they cheated Connaught and the west
    Across the seventeenth century from war we had no rest
    For the curse of Cromwell plagued the land
    Till our towns were red with blood
    Then the Battle of the Boyne was fought by Williams, James and foreign hoards

    You'll never beat the Irish
    No matter what you do
    You can kill us off and put us down
    and exterminate us too
    But we'll come back again
    You know we are the fighting Irish
    and we'll fight until the end
    You should have known
    You'll never beat the Irish

    Part 2

    Was at Siege of Limerick that Patrick Sarsfield won the day
    But the Irish they were cheated when his army went away
    Then Queen Ann and her successors enforced on us those Penal Laws
    Denying their rights and liberty of religion lands and property

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
    Ducking diving faugh a balla clear the way
    Diddily i del de di diddly idle do

    Then came the three mad Georges and they had us nearly fooled
    They couldn't speak the lingo of the counties that they ruled
    Puppets of the ascendancy they kept the Irish down
    But the rebels and the whiteboys kept their arms and their forces on the run

    You'll never beat the Irish
    No matter what you do
    You can put us down and keep us out
    But we'll come back again
    You know we are the fighting Irish
    and we'll fight until the end
    You should have known
    You'll never beat the Irish

    Then the famine Queen Victoria came to rule us by and by
    She was on the throne so bloody long
    we thought she'd never die
    She presided over hunger famine poverty and disease
    She drove the people from their home to their deaths or lands beyond the foam

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
    Ducking diving faugh a balla clear the way
    Diddily i del de di diddly idle do

    Across the 19th century we fought opression with great zeal
    O'Connell spoke his blarney for emancipation and repeal
    Young Ireland and the Fenians tried with dynamite and gun
    Parnell, the Men of Sixteen, then Collins had their armies on the run

    You'll never beat the Irish
    No matter what you do
    You can kill us off and put us down
    and exterminate us too
    But we'll come back again
    You know we are the fighting Irish
    and we'll fight until the end
    You should have known
    You'll never beat the Irish

    Part 3

    In 1922 well they divided up our land
    Six counties held by England, it was all they could command
    Against the wishes of the majority of the people of our land
    They drew a dorder through our country through town and home and mountains

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
    Ducking diving faugh a balla clear the way
    Diddily i del de di diddly idle do

    Then the country was engulfed into a bloody civil war
    Between those against the treaty and those who voted for
    George the IV, he opend Parliament for the stalled in the north
    While the rest were building Ireland from the ruined colonial lashes

    You'll never beat the Irish
    No matter what you do
    You can put us down and keep us out
    But we'll come back again
    You know we are the fighting Irish
    and we'll fight until the end
    You should have known
    You'll never beat the Irish

    Then Edward, George, and Elizabeth looked after Ireland's fate
    They watched discrimination grow in a gerrymandered state
    Homes and churches burnt while the orange power did grew
    Discrimination bigotry in housing jobs and liberties

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
    Ducking diving faugh a balla clear the way
    Diddily i del de di diddly idle do

    From the ashes of the past, the Phoniex did emerge
    A new declared republic, on the world it did converge
    The search for peace prosperity and unity in our land
    We too are locked in Europe, till they made their peace agreement

    You'll never beat the Irish
    No matter what you do
    You can kill us off and put us down
    and exterminate us too
    But we'll come back again
    You know we are the fighting Irish
    and we'll fight until the end
    You should have known
    You'll never beat the Irish

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way

    Muder plunder faugh a balla clear the way
    Cheating stealing diddle idle de
