lyrics

Michael's making his way down the Edgware road tonight
With his bags and ragged clothes he's not a pretty sight
Just another bleak day in the rest of his life
With no fixed abode as he carries his weary load
And Michael do they want you anymore

Michael he's a man, travelled the world in a uniform
You name it he's been there from Dunkirk over to Alamein
And his eldest brother died beside the river Kwai
Michael paid his price and now he makes it twice
And Michael do they need you anymore

Chorus:

And the butterflies inside will drown with the tide
Of the cider the meths and the wine
And Michael do they need you anymore

Michael answered the call
when the clouds billowed for Hitler's war
It wasn't Michael's war but a jobs a job you know the score
And thousand's fought and died in many foreign lands
But who gives a damn for a dead Irishman
And Michael they don't need you anymore

Michael has a son in Toronto off in Canada
And his daughter wed a man away in southern Africa
And the woman he once loved she love's him no more
She just walked away things happen that way
And Michael they don't want you anymore

Chorus:

And the butterflies inside will drown with the tide
Of the cider the meths and the wine
And Michael they don't want you anymore
