"This Is A Rebel Song (sinead O'connor)" as written by and Sinead O'connor....
[girl:]

I love you my hard englishman
Your rage is like a fist in my womb
Can't you forgive what you think I've done
And love me, I'm your woman

And I desire you my hard englishman
And there is no more natural thing
So why should I not get loving
Don't be cold englishman

[guy & girl:]

How come you never said you love me
In all the time you've known me
How come you never say you're sorry

[girl:]

I do

Oh please talk to me englishman
What good will shutting me out get done
Meanwhile crazies are killing our sons
Oh listen, englishman

I've honored you hard englishman
Now I am calling your heart to my own
Oh let glorious love be done
Be truthful englishman

[guy & girl:]

How come you never said you love me
In all the time you've known me
How come you never say you're sorry

[girl:]

I do
I do

    General Commentsinead o'connor is irish (i think, I may be wrong) and if the lyrics are correct, it'd be something along the lines of her talking as an irish woman to an englishman, two peoples who have always fought, even though the two in the song have shared something. again, I may be wrong

    General CommentFirst of all, i thought this was a great song, and then i read everyone's comments and realized its actual referent, and now i think it's even greater! one thing though--don't you think it's "let glorious work be done" and not "love"? It's an allusion to something...

    General Commentoh yeah she was a solo artist and she was cool and that is her singing with no use. the original song is way better than this one.
