I went down to Dublin town one morning in the spring,
To fight robomen of black and tin who served a cyborg king,
I saw armoured cars, shouts from bars and beatings in the street,
I smelled the oil of times gone by from androids on the beat.

Down all the days of history
A fight we could not forsee
With our Celtic Tiger lifestyle
Smoking tabs and herbal tea

Twenty sixteen - it's happening again
Evil machines - oh please let it end
What did we do to deserve this plight?
Made evil machines!
Oh yeah, that’s right

They’d all returned: I saw Vinny Byrne, Paddy Pearse had a neon glow
There was Connolly’s shade with a new upgrade uploaded to the GPO
They fought like hell, spoke in HTML, until the last man was standing
With detachable parts and valor in our hearts as we watched the robots landing

One hundred years right to the day
The war is coming back
With metal hearts and robot brains
It’s totally different craic

Twenty sixteen - here we go again
Evil machines - when will it end?
We were too busy being out on the lock
To prepare ourselves for the futureshock

Howth Mausers
Green trousers
Laser pistols
Robot Bristols
Easter Rising
Barrack builders
Erskine Childers
Napper Tandy
Take her handy
Sean MacDermott
Room 40
Rebel sortie
Dublin Castle
Loads of hassle
Tayto packets
Puffer jackets
Gerry Adams
Monto madams
Twink and Geldof
Bankers let off
Wogan, Grogan’s and The Nolans
Boom and bust
Public trust
Suicide and civic pride
Crooked deals in shades of green
Living far beyond our means

It’s just like the bit in Darby O’Gill
That would shit you up as a child
A death coach drawn by metal steeds
And you must get inside

Twenty sixteen - history repeats
Evil machines - on O’Connell Street
You have to wonder what they’re fighting for
We’re just plastic paddies in a future war
