Gentlemen, start your axes
It was winter, it was cold
I was bent double at the end of the road

I was lost in a world of my own
Pissing my suicide note in the snow
Yeah

Yeah
Yeah

When a white flash nearly made my heart stop
I'd stopped the world and I was getting off
It was neither, it was Joey Dunlop
I said, "this is either Jesus, aliens or cops"

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

One day you'll go to the great big bar in th e sky
So hats off for Joey Dunlop

Everybody's free, everybody flies
Me, George Best and Hurricane Higgins
The greats will be there, you wouldn't want to miss it

Yeah
Yeah

So hats off for Joey Dunlop
Yeah

So hats off for Joey Dunlop
