Plastic Ono Yes Vote


Ev'rybody's talking about
  loyalists, royalists, realists, nihilists,
  snipers and pipers, ceasefires and peace fires,
  kybosh, eyewash:
All we are praying is
Give Truce A Chance.

Let me tell you now:
  Referendum, Eniskillen, restitution, retribution,
  re-partition, ammunition, aberration, dedication,
  capitulations:
All we are praying is
Give Truce A Chance.

OK, let's initial it:
  UUP and DUP and SDLP,
  PUP and IRA and INLA,
  LVF and SF and UVF,
  Johnny Hume and Gerry Adams,
  David Trimble, Ian Paisley,
  Ian, Ian Paisley:
All he's not saying is
Give Priests A Chance.....(repeat until tired)
