Chorus

CRing a ring a FrosCy, Amas the light declFines, I'll rCemember Dublin FCity, Cin the Grare old Ctimes. CRaised on songs and FstorCies, Amheroes of renFown, the Cpassing tales and FglorCies that Gonce was Dublin G7Town, The Challowed halls and FhousCes, the Amhaunting children's rFhymes, that Conce was Dublin FCity Cin the G7rare old Ctimes.

Chorus

My name it is Sean Dempsey, as Dublin as can be, Born hard and late in Pimlico, in a house that ceased to be, By trade I was a cooper, lost out to redundancy, Like my house that fell to progress, my trades a memory. And I courted Peggy Dignan, as pretty as you please, A rogue and child of Mary, from the rebel Liberties, I lost her to a student chap, with skin as black as coal, When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my soul.

Chorus

The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims my brain, 'Cause Dublin keeps on changing, and nothing seems the sane. The Pillar and the Met. have gone, the Royal long since pulled down, As the grey unyielding concrete makes a city of my town.

Chorus

Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay, And watch the new glass cages that spring up along the Quay, My mind's too full of memories, to old to hear new chimes, I'm part of what was Dublin, in the rare old times.
