On the twelfth of December, that day of reknown
McGrath and his keeper they left Lurgan town
A gale in the Channel, it soon drove them o’er
On the thirteenth day they landed on fair England’s shore.

And when they arrived there in big London town
Those great English sportsmen they all gathered round
And some of the gentlemen gave a ‘Ha ha’
Saying ‘Isn’t that the great dog you call Master McGrath’.

Then Lord Lugan came forward and said ‘Gentlemen
If there’s any amongst you has money to spend
For you nobles of England I don’t care a straw
Here’s five thousand to one upon Master McGrath.

Then McGrath he looked up and he wagged his old tail
Informing his lordship ‘I know what you mane
Don’t fear noble Brownlow, don’t fear them agra
For I’ll tarnish their laurels’ says Master McGrath.

And Rose stood uncovered, the great English pride
Her master and keeper were close by her side
they have her away and the crowd cried ‘Hurrah’
For the pride of all England – and Master McGrath.

As Rose and the Master they both ran along
‘Now I wonder’ says Rose,’What took you from your home
You should have stopped there in your Irish demesne
And not come to gain laurels on Albion’s plain.’

‘Well I know’ says McGrath, ‘We have wild heather bogs
But you’ll find in old Ireland there’s good men and dogs
Lead on bold Brittannia, give none of your jaw’
Snuff that up your nostrils’ says Master Mcgrath.

Then the hare she led on with a wonderful view
And swift as the wind o’er the green field she flew
But he jumped on her back and he held up hios paw
‘Three cheers for old Ireland’ says Master McGrath.
