Face her for Mount Leinster

Lyrics

CHORUS
Face her for the mountain and face her for the hill
When you face her for Mount Leinster, she’ll keep on dancing still
Face her for the valley and face her for the glenn
When you face her for Mount Leinster, she’ll start to dance again

She is a lovely girl and she has a lovely sister
I tell you were they live, they live up on Mount Leinster
She’s a great girl with a hurley and a great girl with a sloitre
She may be small and burley but begor, there is no fitter
Chorus

She plays the auld camogie with the local team
Who shall, we shall, Myshall, ye’ll hear the fans all scream
I brought her to the disco and I brought her to the pub
Then I brought her to the chippers because she likes her grub
Chorus
