Will you come to the bower o'er the free boundless ocean
Where the stupendous waves roll in thunder and motion
Where the mermaid is seen and the fierce tempest gathers
To loved Erin the Green the dear land of our fathers

Ch. Will you come, will you, will you, will you come to the bower
Will you come, will you, will you, will you come to the bower

Will you come to the land of O'Neill and O'Donnell
Robert Emmet and Wolfe Tone and the immortal Dan O'Connell
Where King Brian drove the Danes and St Patrick the vermin
And whose valleys remain still most beautiful and charming

You can visit Benburb and the storied Blackwater
Where Owen Roe met Munroe and his chieftains did slaughter
Where the lambs skip and play on the mossy all over
From these bright golden views to enchanting Rostrevor

You can see Dublin City and the fine groves of Blarney
The Bann, Boyne and Liffey and the Lakes of Killarney
Where King Brian drove the Danes and St Patrick the vermin
And whose valleys remain still most beautiful and charming

Will you come and awake our lost land from its slumber
And together we will break, chains that long have encumbered
And the air will resound with hosannas to meet you
On the shore will be found gallant Irishmen to greet you
