Verse :

C                        Cadd9   G                      G7
I missed a day or two of school, because I was called a fool

C                    Cadd9   G                   G7
And beat around the place, because I was staring into space

C                        Cadd9   G                  G7                
He stole a little bit of coal, because his flat was cold

C                                Cadd9
There's mountains of coal on the docks

G                              G7
He took some and rain into the cops

   Am7                      D
And now we're packed off to school

Industrial school

We'll learn the meaning of the word, meaning of the word

Am7                         D
And now we're locked up in school

Industrial school

We'll learn the meaning of the word cruel

Chorus :

Tooralooraloo, Tooraloorali,

Tooralooraloo, Whackfoldadi,

Tooralooraloo, Tooraloorali,

Tooralooraloo, Whackfoldadi

[Just follows the same chords pattern]

My uncle was sent to Daingean
My Granda to Letterfrack
And the child that was locked up there
Never did come back
Some were raped and some were tortured
Some beaten and abused,
Frightened little children, so lonely and so confused

Now the Irish have their stories and their music thatís passed on
From distant generations, who were kept down for so long
But they also have the madness, child abuse and rage
Sexual frustration passed down from another age
Their language land and culture, their ancient pride was lost,
And sexual repression was what religion cost.
We have to break the cycle, cos itís still passed down boss
We have to break the cycle before any more kids are lost
