In Dublin Town there lives a girl
Fairer than the flower I'm wearin'
Rose Donoghue, all fresh and new
And I love her past all carin'
And there she goes, my Ringsend Rose|
In God's garden there's none rarer
And there she goes, my Ringsend Rose
Dublin Town has seen none fairer
Three yards of lace to walk with grace
And the golden ring she's askin'
The saving's slow, ah, but still I know
That our love is everlastin'
