Lyrics of Give Ireland Back to the Irish

Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Don't Make Them Have To Take It Away
Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Make Ireland Irish Today
Great Britain You Are Tremendous
And Nobody Knows Like Me
But Really What Are You Doin'
In The Land Across The Sea

给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
不要让他们不得不采取它扔掉
给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
今天让爱尔兰爱尔兰
你是巨大的大不列颠
没有人知道像我这样的
但真正结果你做什么'
在隔海相望的土地


Tell Me How Would You Like It
If On Your Way To Work
You Were Stopped By Irish Soldiers
Would You Lie Down Do Nothing
Would You Give In, or Go Berserk

告诉我你会怎么喜欢它
若您的工作方式
您爱尔兰士兵拦住了
请问你躺下无为
你会放弃,或发狂


Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Don't Make Them Have To Take It Away
Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Make Ireland Irish Today

给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
不要让他们不得不采取它扔掉
给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
今天让爱尔兰爱尔兰


Great Britain And All The People
Say That All People Must Be Free
Meanwhile Back In Ireland
There's A Man Who Looks Like Me

大不列颠及全民
说所有的人必须是自由的
同时早在爱尔兰
有一个人喜欢我的时候


And He Dreams Of God And Country
And He's Feeling Really Bad
And He's Sitting In A Prison
Should He Lie Down Do Nothing
Should Give In Or Go Mad

而他的理想是上帝和国家
而他的感觉真的很恶劣
而且他坐在监狱
他要躺下无为
应给予或精神失常


Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Don't Make Them Have To Take It Away
Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Make Ireland Irish Today

给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
不要让他们不得不采取它扔掉
给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
今天让爱尔兰爱尔兰


Give Ireland Back To The Irish
Don't Make Them Have To Take It Away
Give Ireland Back To The Irish

给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰
不要让他们不得不采取它扔掉
给爱尔兰回到爱尔兰

'Give Ireland Back to the Irish' is a Paul and Linda McCartney song written in response to the events of Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland on 30 January 1972. The song was released on 25 February 1972 as the debut single by McCartney's new band Wings, and it was the first recorded song by Wings that included Irish guitarist Henry McCullough.

It was completely barred from media exposure in the United Kingdom, being banned by the BBC, Radio Luxembourg and the Independent Television Authority. On the BBC Radio 1 chart show 'Pick of the Pops', Alan Freeman had to refer to it as 'a record by the group Wings'. 'From our point of view,' said Paul McCartney, 'it was the first time people questioned what we were doing in Ireland. It was so shocking. I wrote 'Give Ireland Back to the Irish', we recorded it and I was promptly 'phoned by the Chairman of EMI, Sir Joseph Lockwood, explaining that they wouldn't release it. He thought it was too inflammatory. I told him that I felt strongly about it and they had to release it. He said, 'Well it'll be banned', and of course it was. I knew 'Give Ireland Back to the Irish' wasn't an easy route, but it just seemed to me to be the time. All of us in Wings felt the same about it. But Henry McCullough's brother who lived in Northern Ireland was beaten up because of it. The thugs found out that Henry was in Wings.' The song reached number 1 in the singles charts in the Republic of Ireland and Spain, but it only climbed to number 16 in the UK Singles Chart and number 21 in the U.S. 'Billboard' Hot 100.

The B-side of the single, 'Give Ireland Back to the Irish (version)', is an instrumental version of the A-side. The A-side was reissued as a bonus track on the 1993 remastered CD of Wings' 'Wild Life' album.
