We put the hood round his head
Then we shot the bastard dead
With a nick nack paddy whack
give a dog a bone
Send the stupid bastards home

The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again

Tu ra lu ra laddy
got pissed in Limavaddy
Got a kicking from the locals
There's a bunch of drunkin' paddys
With a nick nack paddy whack
give a dog a bone
Send the stupid bastards home

The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again

I shot one, I shot two, I shot three
That's more than you
With a nick nack paddy whack
give a dog a bone
Send the stupid bastards home

The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
The nation's gonna rise again
