Put 'Em Under Pressure
by U2

Album: Tribute To Ireland (1990)
  • Ole, Ole Ole Ole, Ole, Ole
    Ole, Ole Ole Ole, Ole

    We've qualified for the World Cup
    Go and compete

    We're prepared, a new goal
    We'll do our best
    We'll Put 'em Under Pressure, defense, defense

    The game is about
    Being effective
    Being aggressive
    Winning the ball
    Getting it on with the play
    We'll Put 'em Under Pressure

    Ole, Ole Ole Ole, Ole, Ole
    Ole, Ole Ole Ole, Ole, Ole
    We're all part of jackie's army
    We're all off to win the league
    And we really shake them up
    When we win the World Cup
    Cause Ireland's are the greatest football team

    Put 'em Under Pressure

    It's not going to be easy for us
    But it's not going to be easy for them either
    Watch, watch, watch the people
    Watch the people, watch the people, watch the people, defense, defense
    We inflict our game on the people
    Put 'em Under Pressure, defense, defense, defense, defense

    You gotta give, you gotta give, you gotta give to win
    Goal!

    Put 'em Under Pressure

    Ole, Ole Ole Ole, Ole, Ole
    Ole, Ole Ole Ole, Ole, Ole
    We're all part of Jackie's army
    We're all off to win the league
    And we really shake them up
    When we win the World Cup
    Cause Ireland's are the greatest football team

    Put 'em Under Pressure

    We're all part of Jackie's army
    We're all off to win the league
    And we really shake them up
    When we win the World Cup
    Cause Ireland's are the greatest football team

    And we really shake them up
    When we win the World Cup
    Cause Ireland's are the greatest football team

    We're all part of Jackie's army
    We're all off to win the league
    And we really shake them up
    When we win the World Cup
    Cause Ireland's are the greatest football...

  • Roddie from Waterford, Irelandno, it was NOT U2, only larry involved. Also the riff is taken from 'Dearg Doom' by Irish celtic rockers Horslips
  • Rudekid from Dublin, IrelandLarry didn't actually play on the single either. He produced it, wrote and arranged it. The drums where a machine controlled by a man named Denis Woods.
    Jack Charlton's lyrics where sampled from various TV and Radio interviews.

  • Rudekid from Dublin, IrelandThe performance of the chorus was actually the groupies from outside Windmill Lane. After several attempts to record the Irish team singing the chorus it was decided they couldn't sing a note. To this day the groupies have never been credited.
