A light shown in the night some way ahead,

Blue turned into green then it was red

And stirring the night love music played the light

I saw in the night was a penny arcade

Hey step up and play each machine seemed to say,

As I walked round and round the penny arcade

Just ring the bell on the big bagatelle

And you’ll make all those colored lights cascade

And music played at the penny arcade,

Yes it played and it played,

Played all the time

Roll up and spend your last dime.

When James and all his rebel scum

Came up to Bishop’s Gate,

With heart and hand and sword and shield

We’ll guard old Derry’s walls.
