The House Down in Carne (Nuke Power) (Tim Doe Whelan ) Well me name is Nuke Power, a terror am I, I can cause such destruction on land, sea or sky. Your Minister tells you I'II do you no harm If lhe locks me up in his house down in Carne. cho: Toora loo, toora lay, I can cripple and maim and cause death and decay. He'll have me well guarded by night and by day With soldiers on land and with sailors at sea; Put no one can tame me, I'II be restless I warn, IT he tries to lock me in his house down in Carne. Such a beautiful country I see all around Where people and flowers and fishes abound. I'II change that whole scene in ten seconds I warn If he tries to lock me in his house down in Carne. I'll poison your children, I'II strangle your dog, I'II kill every creature on land, sea and bog. I'II devastate Ireland from Killarney to Lame If he tries to lock me in his house down In Carne. Now I have three comrades called wind, rain and sun. Very powerful are they and also they're great fun. Treat them with respect and they'll do you no harm. They'll work for you free every day down in Carne. Now to all you fine people, I make this strong plea. Co tell your Minister to let me go free. If you don't try to use me, I'II do you no harm, So don't let him lock me in his house down in Carne. Copyright Tim Doc Whelan 1978 RG APR99
