Happy St Patrick’s Day

“I took a stroll down the old long walk on a day -I-ay-I-ay
I met a little girl and we stopped to talk on a grand soft day -I-ay-I-ay
Well I ask you, friend, what’s a fella to do
Because her hair was black and her eyes were blue
And I knew right then – I’d be takin’ a whirl
‘Round the Salthill Prom with a Galway girl

We were halfway there when the rain came down on the day -I-ay-I-ay
She asked me up to her flat downtown
on a grand soft day -I-ay-I-ay
And I ask you friend, what’s a fella to do
Ah – because her hair was black and her eyes were blue
So I took her hand – and I gave it a twirl
Then I lost my heart to a Galway girl

Oi!

Well when I woke up I was all alone
With a broken heart and a ticket home
And I ask you friend, what would you do?
Well if her hair were black and her eyes were blue
And I’ve been all around, I’ve been all over this world
Boys – I’ve never seen nothin’ like a Galway girl”
