With people here workin' by day and by night
But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street
So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold
In the place where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea.
There's beautiful girls here, Oh never you mind
lovely complexions of roses and cream
That if at that those roses you venture to sip
So I'll wait for the wild rose that's waitin' for me

Well sure, now, he's round here with the rest of the force
And he stopped the whole street with a wave of his hand
The whole town of London stood there to look on
To be back where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea
But for all his great powers he's wishful like me
