There's a Belfast girl I loved and lost 
On the rolling hills around my home 
Now she stays home nights behind locked doors 
 Since a plastic bullet stopped him 
And he don't come no more 

There's a Belfast boy was loved and lost 
On the crowded streets of his own home town 
 Pepper my heart with a lover's words 
And I'll pepper yours with a Gatlin gun 

 Mother my heart is full of lead 
And it weighs me down and I just can't cry 
 Remember me to schoolboy friends 
And tell it as it was, please try 

So come by my boy and sit you down 
There's a tale to hear, a tale to tell this town 
You say the devil will get me some day 
You can tell him I'm waiting 
 Cause these are the things I must say 

 Mother my heart is full of lead 
And life holds few surprises too 
Tell that to the little ones 
 Before they learn to laugh at you 

 Mother my heart is full of lead 
And it weighs me down and I just can't cry 
 Remember me to schoolboy friends 
And tell it as it was, please try
