Siochána Breakdown (Siochána)

There's a fiery bunch of boys they call Siochána,
They came from many parts of this fair land.
From Townshend Fort to the smallest port,
There's music everywhere,
To help you stomp your feet and clap your hands.

They were coppers by their trade,
And a difference they had made,
In the lives of those in peril, loss and strife.
'Twas a calling that they had,
And God bless them lass and lad,
And to those for whom they'd made a better life.

Give peace to all you cross
and help them make their day,
And the only thing you ask is pass it on.
In this world in which we live,
yeah we've got a lot to give,
Now give a little rhythm to this song,
Siochána Breakdown!

Of our history we are proud,
And we like to say out loud,
Since 1871 we've felt this way.
In the mud and blood and beer,
There's no room for any fear,
You can mark it down we're damn well here to stay.

It's the story that we told,
Of the many that we hold,
Of battles won and lost along the way.
But what we like best to do, Is to play a tune or two,
So listen to me closely when I say:

Give peace to all you cross
and help them make their day,
And the only thing you ask is pass it on.
In this world in which we live,
yeah we've got a lot to give,
Now give a little rhythm to this song,
Siochána Breakdown!

Give peace to all you cross
and help them make their day,
And the only thing you ask is pass it on.
In this world in which we live,
yeah we've got a lot to give,
Now give a little rhythm to this song,
Siochána Breakdown!
