The Story Behind The Song

Lillibullero

Ho, brother Teague, dost hear the decree?
Lillibullero bullen a la
We are to have a new deputy
Lillibullero bullen a la

Lero Lero Lillibullero
Lillibullero bullen a la
Lero Lero Lero Lero
Lillibullero bullen a la

Oh by my soul it is a Talbot
Lillibullero bullen a la
And he will cut every Englishman's throat
Lillibullero bullen a la

Now Tyrconnell is come ashore
Lillibullero bullen a la
And we shall have commissions galore
Lillibullero bullen a la

And everyone that won't go to Mass
Lillibullero bullen a la
He will be turned out to look like an ass
Lillibullero bullen a la

Now the heretics all go down
Lillibullero bullen a la
By Christ and St Patrick's the nation's our own
Lillibullero bullen a la

There was an old prophecy found in a bog
Lillibullero bullen a la
Ireland will be ruled by an ass and a dog
Lillibullero bullen a la

Now this prophecy is all come to pass
Lillibullero bullen a la
For James is the dog and Tyrconnell's the ass
Lillibullero bullen a la

The Story is told by Babba

The Music is by

  • The Regimental Band and Massed Pipes and Drums of The Scots Guards on Parade.
  • Paul Clayton from the album Folk Ballads Of The English-Speaking World
