In these times of great Austerity it’s wonderful to know

That trust in our fine fine leaders continues but to grow

Unlike that Dicky Nixon who lied at Watergate

We’ve never ever heard a fib from a rep of our great State

No forelocks tugged to Troicas, no more tax on meagre pay

So let’s hear it now for Gerry

Who wasn’t in the IRA

 

So as you count the cost of life, isn’t it great to know

That LPT and USC continue but to grow

Unlike aul Lancey Armstrong who lied about the drugs

You’d never have a Teachta Dail taking us for mugs

No returns to Bond holders, they’ll never get their pay

There’s about as much a chance ‘a that

As Gerry being in the IRA

 

As we try to raise our children, it’s heartening to know

That the green shoots from our Country continue but to grow

Unlike aul Billy Clinton who lied about the mot

You’d never get a minister takin’ us for all we’ve got

No rowing back on health care, the sick all get their way

Let’s place our faith in Gerry

Who wasn’t in the IRA

 

The vulnerable are with us and it’s wonderful to know

That the quality of their care continues but to grow

Unlike aul Georgie Washington who lied about the tree

At least we know our vulnerable can trust the HSE

So hail all Politicians they’re as honest as the day

Sure look at Gerry Adams

He wasn’t in the IRA
