lirik lagu daniel o’donnell – dublin in the rare auld times

Loading...

raised on songs and stories
heroes of renown
the p-ssing tales and glories
that once was dublin town
the hallowed halls and houses
the haunting childrens rhymes
that once was dublin city
in the rare ould times

chorus
ring a ring a rosey
as the light declines
i remember dublin city
in the rare ould times

my name it is sean dempsey
as dublin as can be
born hard and late in pimlico
in a house that ceased to be
by trade i was a cooper
lost out to redundancy
like my house that fell to progress
my trade’s a memory
and i courted peggy dignan
as pretty as you please
a rogue and child of mary
from the rebel liberties
i lost her to a student chap
with skin as black as coal
when he took her off to birmingham
she took away my soul

chorus
ring a ring a rosey
as the light declines
i remember dublin city
in the rare ould times

the years have made me bitter
the gargle’s dimmed me brain
’cause dublin keeps on changing
and nothing seems the same
the pillar and the met. have gone
the royal long since pulled down
as the grey unyielding concrete
makes a city of my town

chorus
ring a ring a rosey
as the light declines
i remember dublin city
in the rare ould times

fare thee well sweet anna liffey
i can no longer stay
and watch the new gl-ss cages
that spring up along the quay
my mind’s too full of memories
too old to hear new chimes
i’m part of what was dublin
in the rare ould times

chorus
ring a ring a rosey
as the light declines
i remember dublin city
in the rare ould times

ring a ring a rosey
as the light declines
i remember dublin city
in the rare ould times
