I said to me da, I said to me da, I said to me da
"I'm not fit for soldier"
I said to me da, I said to me da, I said to me da
"I'm not fit for soldier"

I said to me da, I said to me da, I said to me da
"I'm not fit for soldier"
I said to me da, I said to me da, I said to me da
"I'm not fit for soldier"

For the king, he say, the king, he say
For now you fight or I'll take your land away
For the king, he say, the king, he say
For now you fight or I'll take your land away
So over the seas, over the seas
To kill a man that I have never seen

Over the seas, over the seas
Over the seas, over the seas
Over the seas, over the seas

I won't die for England
Not for England
Not for England

I said to me ma, said to me ma, said to me ma
"I sail away now"
I said to me ma, said to me ma, said to me ma
"I sail away now"

Over the seas, over the seas
Far away from my Ireland
Over the seas, over the seas
Far and away from miles of green

For the king, he say, the king, he say
For now you fight or I'll take your children
For the king, he say, the king, he say
For now you fight or I'll take your children
So they send me away, they send me away
To kill a man that I have never seen

They send me away, they send me away
They send me away, they send me away
They send me away, they send me away

I won't die for England
Not for England

Far away from my homeland
Many miles, many miles I would roam
Far from my home
Far from my home
Far from my home

Far and far away
Far and far away
Far away, far away
Far, far

I won't die for England
Not for England
No, not for England
No, not for England

Not for England
