History tells us how, in Dublin Town,
In 1913 the tenements were falling down.
a strike was called and
the lockout soon began,
Jim Larkin led them out, a Union man.
We need a Jim Larkin,
Who’ll stand with us with pride
Now that Gilmore and Kenny
are on the Bankers side.
For eight long months they starved but held their ground.
But the cold and hunger it broke them, It wore them down.
One hundred years on and have things really changed at all
For your answer just ask the residents of Priory Hall.
Enda Kenny told us in a patronising way,
It’s not our fault, yet still we have to pay. (Truth is)
must be paid so the poor can go to hell,
These are the orders that come from Frau Merkel.
Jim Larkin passed away many years ago,
It’s such a shame ‘cause now we need him so.
o’er in his grave if he could see
What the greed of the Banker’s has done to you and me.
Chorus: ........................ the Bankers side.
Now that Gilmore and co have sold out the Labour Party.
