ROCK ON ROCKALL

 

 

Oh the [G] empire is finished no [D] foreign lands to [G] seize

So the [C] greedy eyes of [G] England are looking towards the [D] seas

Two [G] hundred miles from Done[Em]gal, there's a [G] place that's called Rockall

And the [C] groping hands of [G] Whitehall are [D] grabbing at its [G] walls

 

[chorus]

Oh [G] rock on Rockall, you'll never [Em] fall to [G] Britain's greedy hands

Or you'll [C] meet the same [G] resistance that you did in many [D] lands

May the [G] seagulls rise and pluck your [Em] eyes and the [G] water crush your shell,

And the [C] natural gas will [G] burn your ass and [D] blow you all to [G] hell.

 

For this rock is part of Ireland, 'cos it' s written in folklore

That Fionn MacCumhaill took a sod of grass and he threw it to the fore,

Then he tossed a pebble across the sea, where ever it did fall,

For the sod became the Isle of Man and the pebble's called Rockall.

 

Now the seas will not be silent, while Britannia grabs the waves

And remember that the Irish will no longer be your slaves,

And remember that Britannia, well, - she rules the waves no more

So keep your hands off Rockall - it's Irish to the core.
