Esquire Jackson he’s unequalled for honour and for reason
He never turned traitor nor betrayed the rights of man.
But now we are in danger by a vile deceiving stranger
Who has ordered transportation for the Boys of Mullaghbawn.

As those heroes crossed the ocean, I’m told the ship in motion
Would stand in wild commotion as if the seas ran dry.
The trout and salmon gaping as the Cuckoo left the station
Saying: “Farewell to lovely Erin and the hills of Mullaghbawn.”

To end my lamentation we are in consternation
For want of education I here must end my theme.
None cares for recreation, since, without consideration
We are sent for transportation from the hills of Mullaghbawn.
