We wandered by Thomas Street, down to the Liffey
The sunshine was gone, and the evening grew dark
Along by Kingsbridge Bridge, and begod in a jiffy
My arms were around her beyond in the park

From city or country, a girl is a jewel
And well made for gripping, the most of them are
But any young man he is really a fool
If he tries at the first time to go a bit far

Now If you should go to the town of Dungannon
You can search till your eye are weary or blind
Be you lying or walking or sitting or running
A girl like Annie you never will find
