Dublin Take Me.mp3
ft. Finbar Furey

If you're going back to Dublin, take me.
On a night like this, there is nowhere else I'd rather be.
Just pick me up and carry me across the Irish Sea.
Well if you're going back to Dublin, take me.

Well if I can't make it, please take my regards
To Sweeny O'Donagh, my good friend down in Rathgar.
Keep a clean nose for the customs man and a big smile for the Guards.
Well if I can't make it, please take my regards.

[Chorus]
Sunny days on the Wicklow Mountains, and music on Merrion Row,
Rainy nights in the Gresham Hotel, O Lord, I gotta, I gotta go.

I'll meet you under the arch at Trinity around about eight
And if it don't rain I'll be waiting outside at the gate.
We can go to O'Neill's and talk all night and tomorrow when heaven can wait,
I'll meet you under the arch at Trinity around about eight.

[Chorus]

Oo-oo Oo-oo Oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo Oo-oo Oo-oo-oo

Well if you're goin'gback to Dublin, take me.
On a night like this, there's nowhere else I'd rather be.
Just pick me up and carry me across the Irish Sea.
Well if you're goin' back to Dublin, take me.

[Chorus]

Well if you're goin' back to Dublin,
I said, if you're goin' back to Dublin,
Well if you're goin' back to Dublin, take me,
Take me... take me.
