Colm Roddy from Bayside is barred from the County Clare.
Tell the guards in Ennis if you ever see him there.
He's dangerous and determined, you may be sure of that,
Armed with a lethal weapon - an inflammatory hat.

We must protect the war planes from this terroristic threat
This cranky agitator is the worst protester yet
With a t-shirt and a placard and a sly subversive grin
But against our Yankee masters we will never let him win.

So guard the roads and boreens, the bridges, fields and bogs
Cctv, patrol cars and a hundred tracker dogs
Keep a close eye on the Burren and the Bridge of Killaloe
For you'd never know what mischief this desperate man would do.

Watch out for him in Quilty, Spanish Point and Spancil Hill
Beware in Ennistymon and remember well your drill.
Keep watch in Miltown Malbay as the fugitive we seek
For he might turn up with a squeeze-box at the end of Willie Week.

Now the danger is tremendous in the August of the year
For in Ennis we'll be hosting Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann here
We'll be searching every caravan, back-pack and banjo case
And balladeers we'll commandeer if they satirise our chase.

Now to conclude my story about this dangerous man
To keep him out of County Clare is our determined plan
We'll keep his hat in custody for twelve months and a day
As we tug our forelocks humbly to the good old USA.
