Sir Paul McCartney & Wings - Give Ireland Back To The Irish (New Master Exp.)

Acesta a fost single-ul de debut al grupului Wings, grup format de Paul McCartney. Melodia a fost lansata la 19 Februarie 1972. Din grup a facut parte si chitaristul Henry McCullough, originar din Irlanda de Nord.

Single-ul a fost imediat interzis la BBC, radio Luxembourg si Independent Television Authority. La BBC Radio 1, in topul Pick of the Pops, DJ-ul Alan Freeman spunea doar ca este un disc al grupului Wings.

Melodia are la baza un eveniment real. La 30 Ianuari 1972, soldatii britanici au tras in 26 de civili ne-inarmati in Derry, Irlanda de Nord omorand 13 dintre ei. Imagini de la locul incidentului, cu pastorul Edward Daly fluturand o batista insangerata ca si steag alb, in timp ce prietenii incercau sa scoata de acolo un ranit din fata soldatilor, au provocat oroare si manie in jurul lumii.

Versuri:

Give Ireland back to the Irish
Don’t make them have to take it away
Give Ireland back to the Irish
Make Ireland Irish today
Great Britain you are tremendous
And nobody knows like me
But really what are you doin’
In the land across the sea
Tell me how would you like it
If on your way to work
You were stopped by Irish soldiers
Would you lie down do nothing
Would you give in or go berserk
Give Ireland back to the Irish
Don’t make them have to take it away
Give Ireland back to the Irish
Make Ireland Irish today
Great Britain and all the people
Say that all people must be free
Meanwhile back in Ireland
There’s a man who looks like me…
