Wake Up, Irishman
Chris Byrne

What time is it ? Time to wake up!
Wake up, wake up, wake up Irishman
Sectarian hatred, me no´understand.

First of all, we must all integrate,
Respect each other, decide our own fate,

Marvin Gray said ´only love can conquer hate´
Send the soldier boy home - he must never come again!

Wake up, wake up, wake up Irishman
Sectarian hatred, me no´understand.

Mother, mother - there´s too many of you cried,
Brother, brother - there´s far too many of you died,
Father, father - there´s no need to escalate,
Oh, war is not the answer - only love can conquer hate.

Protestant brother, I have but one plea,
Look around you, what do you see?
Shankill, the Falls Road, the same poverty,
When you hit for London, they call you Paddy,
Paddy over here, Paddy over there,
No Irishman or dogs gonna get a room here,
Overcome your fear, your head will get clear,
"The voice of Reason" you´ll be able to hear.

Wake up, wake up, wake up Irishman
Sectarian hatred, me no´understand.

Let the Englishman rule the English nation,
Let the Bishop man rule the church,
Give the Irishman self-determination,
That´s the only way that things are gonna work

Wake up, wake up, wake up Irishman
Sectarian hatred, me no´understand.
