lyrics

Adam & Evan

Adam and Evan met through mutual friends
They hit it off and agreed to see each other again
Ten years down the line They’re still in love and doing fine
Two bright healthy, two bright happy men

Now to some of us religion doesn’t mean a lot
But Adam and Evan were desperate to tie the knot
They believe that God is great And whether you're gay or straight
He loves everyone as equal but allegedly not
The holy man said you can’t come in
You know it’s illegal and you know it’s a sin
It’s not up to me it’s what the bible says
You’re going to have to change your evil ways

Well Adam and Evan were devastated by this news
So they called their local MLA to see what he could do
But he just said the same shirking every ounce of blame
You must conform for equality to work for you
Up on the hill the hyenas sit Bullies and liars and hypocrites
All good Christians they'd have us believe
That we’re living in a new democracy

Let's all stand up for Adam and Evan
And for every other couple being victimised
Tell those dinosaurs they better start opening doors
Love is not immoral Love is a human right

Welcome to Northern Ireland the land of fear
Make sure to set your watch back fifty years
Fundamentals rule and use a holy book as a tool
To inflict their shallow views and further their careers
These are the people who'd have us believe
That Jesus died for rich men’s greed
Under the cover of darkness some live a seedy life
And some of them stay home and beat their wife

Let's all stand up for Adam and Evan
