Just a Song

Cuz it's on my mind:

There's nothin' for us in Belfast
The Pound's so old it's a pity
OK, there's the trident in Bangor
Then walk back to the city
We ain't got nothin' but they don't really care
They don't even know you know
They just want money
And we can take it or leave it
What we need

[Chorus] An Alternative Ulster
Grab it and change it it's yours
Get an Alternative Ulster
Ignore the bores and their laws
Get an Alternative Ulster
Be an anti-security force
Alter your native Ulster
Alter your native land

Take a look where you're livin'
You got the Army on your street
And the RUC dog of repression
Is barking at your feet
Is this the kind of place you wanna live?
Is this where you wanna be?
Is this the only life we're gonna have?
What we need is


They say they're a part of you
But that's not true you know
They say they've got control of you
And that's a lie you know
They say you will never be
Free free free

Get an
Alternative Ulster
Alternative Ulster
Alternative Ulster

- Stiff Little Fingers

Ahhh! I told you that yeast was up to something!

Quick, run! Before it rises!

Sadly, the only Stiff Little Fingers I know is Naked Raygun's cover of Suspect Device. But it's good!

The original's better.

After having pulled up Stiff Little Fingers on iTunes and listening to a sample of their work, I must admit that I am skeptical of your claim.

It depends. Late SLF is not so very good. Early, you'd be hard pressed to find someone better.

Hey! I didn't know you were into them. Jan, of course, is the one who introduced me to them instead of any Irish friends. I like 'em lots.

Somehow I knew it would be Jan who introduced you to them :-) Good stuff! (As is Naked Raygun, you know, but I generally privilege the original.)
