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


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
