The Constitutional Movement

The Constitutional Movement

We are the leaders of this mighty Irish nation
Though some folk say our leading days are done (are done)
Ah, but remember, whatever may be your station
That the Constitutional Movement must go on.

cho: So it's gather the party round you, hear us calling
     And let your feet just roll across the floor,
     The Constitutional Movement, all take warning
     Must go on and on and on forevermore.

When Adam and Eve were living down in Eden,
And Eve she ate the apple just for fun (just for fun)
The serpent said to himself as homeward speeding
That the Constitutional Movement must go on.

When Billy and Jim they fought beside the water
and each one thought the other was on the run (on the run)
I was glad to escape that awful slaughter
For the Constitutional Movement must go on.

We are the leaders of this mighty Irish nation
Though some folk say our leading days are done (are done)
Ah, but remember, whatever may be your station
That the Constitutional Movement must go on.

note: Billy and James are clearly William of Orange and James II.
Heard from a local group "Walking on Air" who heard it from the
McPeake Family. RW
