ANY MICK'LL DO
(Brian McNeill)

'Cause any Mick'll do, any black, any Jew
Any poor wee soul (bugger) who's not like you
They're down from the trees and they're up from the bogs
They come round here and they steal your job
They're all the bloody same - just no' the same as you
And when a scapegoat's what you need - any Mick'll do

Gerry Conlon stood before the jury
Before the judge in his gown and his wig
And the whole damn country was sure he was guilty
Even though the evidence was rigged
And when it all came out, it was the old familiar shout
He'll be guilty of something, sure as hell
What's a Paddy more or less, and anyway, he confessed
Stick him down in his cell, and his father as well

They told Annie Maguire she was a bomber
She heard every expert witness testify
That they'd found traces of gelignite upon her hands
And British justice would not be denied
And when they found they were wrong, it was the same old song
She's a danger to us all if she's free
With every day that goes by, we're more committed to the lie
So just leave her be and throw away the key

I hate every Jew who kicks a Palestinian
And every Nazi who ever kicked a Jew
I hate every stupid bigoted opinion
And if you don't hate them too, then I hate you
But what I hate most of all is the sheer damned gall
Of a system that never thinks twice
About furthering a grudge with a jury and a judge
And when they're loading the dice, tell me who pays the price
^^

The lyrics Jeff/Pene posted are from http://mysongbook.de/, the extraordinary work of Henry Kochlin and Mudcat's own Susanne (skw). Take a look at the fascinating notes they have collected on this song and many others.

Good song - I haven't seen it before. Cautionary tale. Make sure your audience understands irony! A poor bloke at our folk club got a terrible tirade of abuse from someone who didn't understand Eric Bogles 'I hate Wogs' song was actualy very anti-racist.

Cheers

Very powerful song, and it has a very rhythmic driving tune (you can hear the rhythm in the words) which helps to get the message across- the words are almost spat out. I heard Garva sing it in a club here recently, and it was very moving.

I don't know the tune well enough to post it, though... anyone else?

Just a naughty thought - I wonder if we could shoehorn it into the tune 'Any Dream Will Do' from Joesph's Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat...
