  • Mountains of Mourne
    Oh Mary this London's a wonderful sight
    With people here workin' by day and by night
    They don't sow potatoes, nor barley, nor wheat
    But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street
    At least when I asked them that's what I was told
    So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold
    But for all that I found there I might as well be
    In the place where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea.

    There's beautiful girls here, Oh never you mind
    Beautiful shapes nature never designed
    lovely complexions of roses and cream
    But let me remark with regard to the same
    That if at that those roses you venture to sip
    The colours might all come away on your lips
    So I'll wait for the wild rose that's waitin' for me
    In the place where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea.
    You remember young Davey Mc Clarin of course
    Well sure, now, he's round here with the rest of the force
    I saw him one day as I was crossin' the strand
    And he stopped the whole street with a wave of his hand
    And as we stood talkin' of days that are gone
    The whole town of London stood there to look on
    But for all his great powers he's wishful like me
    To be back where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea
    But for all his great powers he's wishful like me
    To be back where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea
