"Going About My Father's Business" as written by and Paul Maurice Kelly....
Standing in the darkness watching while you sleep
I can hear you softly breathing while I creep

Going about my father's business
Doing my father's time
What's done to me I'll do to mine

I woke up one summer morning he was gone
Soft light through the window breaking for my son

Going about my father's business
Doing my father's time
What's done to me I'll do to mine

Know them by what they do
Let no-one speak for you
Just this I beg of you
Forgive me, forgive me

Someday when we sign the treaty I'll be home
War is long and lasts for ever and I'm your own

Going about my father's business
Doing my father's time
What's done to me I'll do to mine
What's done to me I'll do to mine
