Dublin Saunter

Lyrics

I’ve been north and I’ve been south, I’ve been east and west
I’ve been just a rolling stone
Yet there’s one place on this earth I’ve always liked the best
Just a little town I call my own

Dublin can be heaven with coffee at eleven
And a stroll in Stephen’s Green
There’s no need to hurry, there’s no need to worry
You’re a king and the lady’s a queen
Grafton Street’s a wonderland, there’s magic in the air
There’s diamonds in the lady’s eyes and gold-dust in her hair
And if you don’t believe me, come and meet me there
In Dublin on a sunny Summer morning

I’ve been here and I’ve been there, I’ve sought the rainbow’s end
But no crock of gold I’ve found
Now I know that come what will, whatever fate may send
Here my roots are deep in friendly ground

Dublin can be heaven with coffee at eleven
And a stroll in Stephen’s Green
There’s no need to hurry, there’s no need to worry
You’re a king and the lady’s a queen
Grafton Street’s a wonderland, there’s magic in the air
There’s diamonds in the lady’s eyes and gold-dust in her hair
And if you don’t believe me, come and meet me there
In Dublin on a sunny Summer morning
