Out On The Mira
(Traditional, arrangement by Anne Murray)
Out on the Mira on warm afternoons old men go fishin’ with blackline and spoons
And if they catch nothing, they never complain -- I wish I was with them again

As boys in their boats call to girls on the shore, teasing the ones they dearly adore
And into the evening the courting begins --
I wish I was with them again

CHORUS:

Can you imagine a piece of the universe more fit for princes and kings?
I’ll trade you ten of your cities for Merrion Bridge and the pleasure it brings

Out on the Mira on soft summer nights bonfires blaze to the children’s delight
They dance ‘round the flames singing songs with their friends and I wish I was with them again

CHORUS

Now I’ll conclude with a wish you go well -- sweet be your dreams, may your happiness swell
I’ll leave you here, for my journey begins -- I’m going to be with them, going to be with them,
I’m going to be with them again
