lyrics

So come one lads lets go out a drinking
We’ll have ourselves good old fashioned time
We’ll probably have a few too many
But it’s been a while so lets get merry
And get our selves chucked out at closing time

We’ll start our night of down at molly millars
And make our way round town from bar to bar
we wont do nothing wrong
But laugh and sing along
It’s a shame the men with badges went too far

So four by four gather round and kick me when I’m down
Who the fuck gave you the right to throw your weight around
As before the law should answer to the crowd
Or at the very least bring peace to our hometown

I believed the lie we lived in a free country
Where the people had a right to know there right
We just wanted to dance
But how could we stand a chance
When it was the police starting the fight

We tried to plead the officers for reason
But they replied with force and misplaced might
So much for having fun
When you see the old bill come
The tunnel’s end no longer holds it’s light

Chorus

Well I suppose we should have known we’d lose the battle
But that doesn’t mean we’ll stop fighting the war
But pushing us around because you smashed him to the ground
We asked what for, what for

for by law gather round and kick me when I’m down
Who the fuck gave you the right to throw your weight around
As before the law should answer to the crowd
Or at the very least bring peace to our home town

Or at the very least make me feel safe and sound
