Dublin In The Rare Oul Times Lyrics

Ring a ring a rosie as the lights declines,
I remember Dublin city in the rare oul times.

Raised on songs and stories, heroes of renown,
The passing tales and glories, that once was Dublin
town,
The hallowed halls and houses, the haunting children's
rhymes,
That once was Dublin city, in the Rare Oul Times.

My name it is Sean Dempsey as Dublin as could be
Born hard and late in Pimlico in a house that ceased to
be
My trade I was a cooper, lost out to redundancy
Like my house that fell to progress my trade's a memory

And I courted Peggy Dignan, as pretty as you please,
A rogue and child of Mary, from the rebel liberties,
I lost her to a student chap, with skin as black as
coal,
When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my
soul.

Ring a ring a rosie as the lights declines,
I remember Dublin city in the rare oul times.

The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims me brain
'Cause Dublin keeps on changing and nothing seems the
same.
The Pillar and the Met have gone, the Royal long since
pulled down
As the grey unyielding concrete makes a city of my
Town.

Ring a ring a rosie as the lights declines,
I remember Dublin city in the rare oul times.

Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay,
And watch the new glass cages, that spring up along the
quay,
My mind's too full of memories, to old to hear new
chimes,
I'm a part of what was Dublin, in the Rare Oul Times.

Ring a ring a rosie as the lights declines,
I remember Dublin city in the rare oul times.

Ring a ring a rosie as the lights declines,
I remember Dublin city in the rare oul times.
