In early spring when small birds sing and lambkins sport and play
My way I took, my friends forsook and came to Dublin quay.
I entered as a passenger and to England i sailed o’er
I bade farewell to all my friends and I left the Shamrock shore.

To Glasgow fair i did repair some pleasure there to find
I found it was a pleasant place down by the banks of Clyde.
The ladies there are very fair, and rich the pearls they wore
But none I saw that could compare with the maids of the Shamrock shore.
