IF WE ONLY HAD OLD IRELAND OVER HERE
(Fallon)
« © '63 Writer Share, PD »

I was dreaming of old Ireland and Killarneys lakes and dells
I was dreaming of the shamrock and the dear old Shandon Bells
When my memories suggested in a vision bright and clear
All the strange things that would happen if we had old Ireland here

If the Blarney stone stood out on Sidney Harbor
And Dublin Town to Melbourne came to stay
If the Shannon River joined the Brisbane Waters
And Killarneys lakes flowed into Botany Bay

If the Shandon Bells rang out in old Fremantle
And County Cork in Adelaide did appear
Erin's sons would never roam all the boys would stay at home
If we only had old Ireland over here
[ piano ]
There were lots of lovely fairies dancin' on the village green
There are lots of lovely coleens the finest ever seen
Where the boys were all called Paddy and the girls called Molly Dear
Sure we'd wrap the green flag round them if we had old Ireland here

If the Shandon Bells rang out in old Fremantle...
If we only had old Ireland over here
