History Is A Nightmare


History is a nightmare
From which I am trying to awake
God is a shout in the street
And Jesus birthday cake

Teaching victories
Of Pyrrhus of Epirus
Cyril Sargent stay behind
For arithmetic exercises

Your ugly face is a challenge
Your mother’s love could not have been easy
I’m off to see the headmaster
Garrett Deasy

Garrett Deasy
Garrett Deasy
He loves the sound of his own voice
It makes me queasy

He laughs at his own views
Ireland never persecuted the jews
Because they never let them in


from the album Recklesses
