Oh Daddy whats that uniform in the wardrobe over there?
Has it any history or medals for to bear?
Has it seen the battlefields like bygone days of yore?
Oh Daddy is that the Uniform that you so proudly wore?

See it's buckles shining bright from the shoulder to the waist,
I also see three letters emblazoned on it's breast,
The U it stands for Ulster,
The V for Volunteer,
The F it stands for the Force,
That fights and never fears.

My memory it strays back again to nineteen forty one,
When Ulsters shores were threatened,
By the Jackboot of the Hun,
And Ulsters people rallied round,
They knew they need not fear,
For the knew God was on their side,
And the Ulster Volunteers.

See it's buckles shining bright from the shoulder to the waist,
I also see three letters emblazoned on it's breast,
The U it stands for Ulster,
The V for Volunteer,
The F it stands for the Force,
That fights and never fears.

So son please take my Uniform and go and fight the foe,
And fight just like your father did so many years ago,
For Ulster it is calling and we must never fear,
So take my Gun my only son and join the Volunteers.

See it's buckles shining bright from the shoulder to the waist,
I also see three letters emblazoned on it's breast,
The U it stands for Ulster,
The V for Volunteer,
The F it stands for the Force,
That fights and never fears.
