As down by Brooker's corner, one morning I did stray.
I met a fellow rebel there, and to me he did say.
We have orders from the Captain to assemble at Dunbar
But how are we to get there without a motor car.
Yes and how are we to get there without a motor car.

Oh Barney dear be of good cheer and I'll tell you what we'll do.
The Specials they are plentiful and the I. Are. A. Are few,
We'll wire up to Stranlar, and before we get that far,
We'll give the boys a bloody good ride in Johnson's Motor Car.
Yes we'll give the boys a bloody good ride in Johnson's Motor Car.

When Doctor Johnson got the wire he soon put on his shoes
He said this must be an urgent case, and there is not time to lose,
He then put on his castor hat and on his breast a star,
You could hear the din going through Glen Fin of Johnson's Motor Car.
You could hear the din going through Glen Fin of Johnson's Motor Car.

But when he got to the Railway Bridge, the rebels he saw there,
And Johnson knew that the game was up for at him they did stare,
He says I have a permit to travel near and far,
You can stick your English permit, we want you motor car.
You can stick your English permit, we want you motor car.

What will my loyal brethren say when they hear the news
My car it has been commandeered by the rebels at Dunluce,
We'll give you a receipt for it, all signed by Captain Barr
And when Ireland gets her freedom, you'll get your motorcar
Yes when Ireland gets her freedom, you'll get your motorcar

Well we sat the car in motion and filled it to the brim
With guns and bayonets shining, which made ould Johnston grim.
And Barney hoisted the Sinn Fein flag and it fluttered like a star,
And we gave three cheers for the I. Are. A. And Johnson's motor car.
Yes we gave three cheers for the I. Are. A. And Johnson's motor car.

Now when the special heard the news, they soon put on their shoes.
They've stolen Johnson's motorcar, but the rebels at Dunluce
They search around the valleys, they search both near and far
But the I. Are. A where far away in Johnson's motor car.
Yes the I. Are. A where far away in Johnson's motor car.
Yes the I. Are. A where far away in Johnson's motor car.
