Tearing away night and day
Always at war and never at peace man
Tearing away night and day
Sure I’m one of the Burnfoot young policemen.

If any young girls come my way
I’ll fill Burnfoot with young policemen
Tearing away night and day
Sure I’m one of the Burnfoot young policemen.

I’m well acquainted with prigs in town
One side up the other side down
Tearing away night and day
Sure I’m one of the Burnfoot young policemen.

When Ireland’s free one fine day
I’ll leave Burnfoot to the young policemen
Tearing away night and day
Sure I’m one of the Burnfoot young policemen.
