Helicopter song - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Its up like a bird and its over the city
"Three men are missing" I heard the warder cry
"Sure it must have been a bird that flew into the prison
Or one of these new Ministers" says the warder in the joy
Early one morning as the branchmen they were sleeping
A little helicopter flew across the sky
Down into the yard where some prisoners were walking
"Get ready for inspection" says the warder in the Joy
And its up like a bird and its over the city
"Three men are missing" I heard the warder cry
"Sure it must have been a bird that flew into the prison
Or one of these new Ministers" says the warder in the joy

Down in the yard through the pushing and the shoving
Three of the prisoners they climbed upon the bird
And up and away they went into the grey skies
"I think that someone escaped" says the warder in the Joy
And its up like a bird and its over the city
"Three men are missing" I heard the warder cry
"Sure it must have been a bird that flew into the prison
Or one of these new Ministers" says the warder in the joy

"Search every hole search every nook and cranny
Let no man rest until these men are found,
For this cannot happen to a law and order government."
"I think youll never find them says the warder in the joy"
And its up like a bird and its over the city
"Three men are missing" I heard the warder cry
"Sure it must have been a bird that flew into the prison
Or one of these new Ministers" says the warder in the joy

Over in the Dail they were drinking gin and brandy
The Minister for Justice was soaking up the sun
when came this little message that some prisoners have escaping
"I think its three of the Provos" says the warder in the Joy
And its up like a bird and its over the city
"Three men are missing" I heard the warder cry
"Sure it must have been a bird that flew into the prison
Or one of these new Ministers" says the warder in the joy

And its up like a bird and its over the city
"Three men are missing" I heard the warder cry
"Sure it must have been a bird that flew into the prison
Or one of these new Ministers" says the warder in the joy
