Packed their bags on their way
to a land far from Dublin’s bay.

Where the sun shines and jobs galore, they once again flocked ashore

Leaving behind what means most
to seek a future and some hope.

Failure of some drove them far, a son, a daughter and even a grand pa.

Many friends they will make, many jobs they will take,but one day they’ll return, to this place which hasn’t been well run.

They’ll have a vision for everyone, a better Ireland a fairer one.
