Back In Ireland lyrics

Here are the lyrics . . .more comments to come.

Back In Ireland
The champagne-cork went pop as we rode in the limo
Never two with such style into poverty I joked
For it seemed then no issue of money or country
Could keep us from where we felt destined to go

Never two to be prompt we had taken the Caddy
Through the Ted Williams tunnel to the airport on time
For our ten extra bags I thrust three hundred singles
But yer man at the counter winked, acted so fine, he said, “Keep it. You can keep it.”

CHORUS:
Soon enough, we’ll be back in Ireland again
Soon enough, we’ll be back in Ireland again
(No more No More)

Well the small flat stayed chilly, and the dryer stayed broken
And the clothes were hung over the tub on a line
And our pints of a Friday cost a week’s worth of wages
But I’m happy enough; I could dance on a dime

CHORUS:
It’s enough, to be back in Ireland again
It’s enough, to be back in Ireland again
(No more No More)

Met a military man in that bar down in Baggot Street
A belligerent boyo from Boise ya know
He had done the world over from Bangkok to Bantry
And of course for him ya know it only went to show
How great was his state, I told him, “Keep it. You can keep it.”

CHORUS:
It’s enough, to be back in Ireland again
It’s enough, to be back in Ireland again
(No more No More)

Short of more than just money, said goodbye to my heart
Left diesel-soaked Dublin like a romantic misstart
But there’s more than just romance to missing the Liffey,
The bark of the hawkers on Henry St,
The fox on the grounds of the AIB,
The beauty who brings rounds of Smithwicks in the Eden Street,
Major’s and Rothmann’s in the square room of Hynes' pub,
The morning wet vines in the gardens of Merrion Square,
Where I hurried to work in the alley beyond there,
The yelps and the squeals of Paul’s gay hunting pup,
When I landed at Logan I wondered would I ever come up
Tell me how long? How long

CHORUS:
‘Til I’m back in Ireland again
‘Til I’m back in Ireland again
(No more No More)
