Lyrics

FOR GOD AND IRELAND

(Chorus)
We?re the fighting Irish and we love our motherland
We?ll not lay down and die without a fight
So if you want our blood you?ll have to spill it for yourself
And see that we are fighters to the man
Fighters for God and Ireland

Be about your business, mate, in any way you must
And rest assured you?ll get no grief from us
But if you?re here to bring a harm or take our liberty
You?ll see that we are fighters to the man
Fighters for God and Ireland

When our foes are vanquished we shall celebrate with ale
And laugh and sing and dance through all the dale
And weep for all our brothers slain in battle for our land
Clutching to their swords for Ireland
Martyrs for God and Ireland

We love our lives and in our hearts we be men of peace
And would never more take up a sword in war
But God forbid we hold our lives dearer than our honor
Or freedom in our Bonnie Ireland
We?re Fighters for God and Ireland
