I see the green Isle of Valencia
I mind the days around Lough Lein
The gannets swinging with abandon
As they watch the silver store that comes their way
I also see a ship on the horizon
She is sailing to a country far away
On board are exiles feeling lonely
As they wave a fond farewell to Dingle Bay

Now years have passed since I came homeward
And time has left me old and grey
I sit and muse about my childhood
And the happy times I spent near Dingle Bay
I see again the green Isle of Valencia
And the Isle of Innismore seems far away
And I’m always dreaming about my homeland
And the happy days I spent near Dingle Bay
