When words fail you don't say why say Ireland say Ireland and I'll tell you why When bombs dismay you don't just cry cry Ireland cry Ireland cry Ireland cry Ireland and I'll tell you why [How much time have you got?] Where are my Irish roots where did I get those boots why do I not like suits and ties and why so shy in front of people It's on top of a steeple that I belong far from the maddening crowd as far as I am allowed far from the maddening crowd as far as I am allowed far from the maddening crowd as far as I am allowed and the crack was in the ceiling Say Ireland...(Ireland)...Say..(Ireland) When words fail you don't say why say Ireland say Ireland
