The Council Chamber lyrics

The Council Chamber

Mrs johnstone
Mickey. Don't shoot eddie. He's your
Brother. You had a twin brother. I couldn't
Afford to keep both of you. His mother
Couldn't have kids. I agreed to give one of you away!

Mickey
You! You! Why didn't you give me away mam!
I could have been. I could have been him! No!

Narrator
And do we blame superstition for what came to pass?
Or could it be what we have come to know as class?
Did you ever hear the story of the johnstone twins,
As like each other as two new pins
How one was kept and one given away,
How they were born, and they died,
On the self same day?
