Boys of Fair Hill

Lyrics

Come and have a holiday with our hurling club so gay
Your souls, we’ll charm and your heart, we will thrill
The boys, they won’t ham you, the girls all will charm you
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill

Jimmy Barry hooked the ball, we hooked Jimmy, balls and all
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill
The Rockies thought that they were stars, till they meet the Saint Finbarr’s
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill

Cathy Barry sells drisheens, fairly bursting at the seams
Bould Shandon Bells, they ring out as they will
The smell on Patrick’s Bridge is wicked, how does Father Matthew stick it?
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill

DeValera crossed the foam, just to see the Blarney Stone
Which can be seen from the groves of Fair Hill
Blarney hens don’t lay at all; when they do they lays ‘em small
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill

Blackpool girls are very small up against the sunbeam wall
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill
Montenotte girls rude, they go swimming in the nude
Here’s up ‘em all say the boys of Fair Hill
