Текст песни:

Well, how do you do, young Willie McBride?
Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside
And rest for a while 'neath the warm summer sun?
I've been walking all day and I'm nearly done
I see by your gravestone you were only 19
When you joined the great fallen in 1916
I hope you died well and I hope you died clean
Or, young Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene?

Did they beat the drum slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post and chorus?
Did the pipes play the "Flowers of the Forest"?

Did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind?
In some faithful heart is your memory enshrined
Although you died back in 1916
In that faithful heart are you forever 19
Or are you a stranger without even a name,
Enclosed and forever behind a glass pane,
In an old photograph torn, battered and stained
And faded to yellow in a brown leather frame?

Did they beat the drum slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post and chorus?
Did the pipes play the "Flowers of the Forest"?

The sun now it shines o'er the green fields of France
There's a warm summer's breeze that makes the red poppies dance
And look how the sun shines from under the clouds
There's no gas, no barbed wire, there's no gun firing now
But here in this graveyard that's still No Man's Land
Oh, the countless white crosses stand mute in the sand
To man's blind indifference, to his fellow man,
To a whole generation that were butchered and damned

Did they beat the drum slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post and chorus?
Did the pipes play the "Flowers of the Forest"?

Now, young Willie McBride, I can't help wonder why
Do those that lie here know why did they die?
And did they believe when they answered the call,
Did they really believe that this war would end wars?
For the sorrow, the suffering, the glory, the shame,
The killing and dying were all done in vain
For, young Willie McBride, it all happened again
And again and again and again and again

Did they beat the drum slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play the last post and chorus?
Did the pipes play the "Flowers of the Forest"?
