Have you ever been to Belfast City, near the county Down?
Have you seen the famous River Lagan and all the views of that fine town?
Have you heard about her beauties, have you heard about her pain?
Oh, that´s my Belfast - where I remain
Take a sight of the Stormont House, cross Queens-Bridge and Oxford Street
The Albert Memorial Clock Tower, see the Custom House by feet
Walk along the Dublin Road Up to the Ulster Hall
Oh, that´s my Belfast - I can´t recall
But don´t forget the Falls Road people, and the office of Sinn Fein
Walk into the Divis Flats, feel the anger and the pain
See the mothers with their little babies, and the big crowd on the dole
Oh, that´s my Belfast - my heart and soul
But see the troops of a foreign nation, they are ready to defeat
And see the guards and the patrol dog, watch the armoured cars in the street
And see those rubber-bullets fly, burst into your head
Oh, that´s my Belfast - my great regret
Do you remember Henry Joy and little Bobby Sands
The UDA, the Black and Tans and the crazy reverend?
