Dubliners
(David McDonagh)
Oh, Dublin you're my city 
I'm proud to call you mine 
Divided by the Liffey's greasy slime 
No matter who I love and woo at home or over sea 
My heart prefers those Dubliners like me 
 
Dublin men and women are the salt of all the earth 
Fiercely true and loyal to the town that gave them birth 
A Dublin man spends all his life making friends 
With black porter each evening at eight 
When they sound his death knell his last prayer is to dwell 
By Saint James' pearly gate 

 Oh, Dublin you're my city 
I'm proud to call you mine 
Divided by the Liffey's greasy slime 
No matter who I love and woo at home or over sea 
My heart prefers those Dubliners like me 
 
Dublin is to Dubliners a dear ould dirty town 
It's getting dearer every year and hard to earn a pound 
And as for the Liffey that gash through the city 
It's thicker than treacle or chalk It will soon be so grim that instead of a swim 
They'll be holding the Liffey walk
