Collection of Irish Song Lyrics

Dublin Saunter

Author: trad

I've been north and I've been south.
I've been rast and west.
I've been just a rolling stone,
Yet there's one place on this earth
I've always liked the best,

Just a little town I call my own.
For Dublin can be heaven
With coffee at eleven
And a stroll in Stephen's Green.
There's no need to hurry.
There's no need to worry.
You're a king and the lady's a queen.
Grafton Street's a wonderland.
There's magic in the air.
There's diamonds in the lady's eyes,
And gold dust in her hair,
And if you don't believe me,
Come and meet me there,
In Dublin on a sunny summer morning.
I've been here and I've been there.
I've sought the rainbow's end,
But no crock of gold I've found.
Now I know that, come what will,
Whatever fate may send,
Here my roots are deep in friendly ground.
For Dublin can be heaven With coffee at eleven,
And a stroll in Stephen's Green.
There's no need to hurry.
There's no need to worry.
You're the king and the lady's a queen.
Grafton Street's a wonderland.
There's magic in the air.
There's diamonds in the lady's eyes
And gold dust in her hair,
And if you don't believe me,
Come and meet me there,
In Dublin on a sunny summer morning.
And if you don't believe me,
Come and meet me there,
In Dublin on a sunny summer morning.

This song was made famous by Irish actor Noel Purcell. The here version is as sung by Paddy Reilly. It's also known as 'Dublin Can Be Heaven'.
