I dream of a beautiful picture
No more need we think of the past
singing and dancing in Ireland
And the people are happy at last.
Sing, Irishman, sing
So the sound of your
voices will ring
And let the world know, it really is so
Sing, Irishman, sing.
There's laughter in Belfast
The music rings over the land
In Calvin, Kilkenny and Kerry.
Oh, boys, I can tell you, it's grand.
more need little ones suffer
The rifles will bring no more pain
They're singing and dancing in Ireland
people are happy again.
I know that it's only a dream now
But my hopes will always remain
To see the sun shine
And the people are happy again.
