    The song is about the US civil war. One line "Yeah I'm off to the civil war". Another is "and I'm a solider at thirteen" and the "and I'm solider at sixty three. Towards the end of the civil war so many men were killed only young boys and old men were left to fight.

    The song is an IRA war protest song. A slip is a type of Irish jig. So a slip kid is an Irish kid. Off to the civil war refers to war between Ireland and Northern Ireland and 2nd generation refers to the fact that the older generation started the conflict but the younger generation is forced to fight and bear the consequences.
