Dublin


The lights are on in Dublin

They’re splicing in the lines

Throw your candles away

They’ve changed the night into day


Tell the sun

To hide it’s face

Tell the stars

They’ve been replaced


We’ll stay awake all night

Half out of wonder

The rest out of spite


Soon we’ll make

The moon our pet

1929

The best year yet


Let’s stay awake all night

Who knows what we’ll see

Just leave on the light


The lights are on in Dublin

Little comets in jars

One for every room

Then on to Donegal soon


‘lectricity in Dublin

There’s no place to hide

Lord please forgive them

I believe they’ve murdered the night
