Come by the hills to the land
where fancy is free,
And stand where the peaks meet the skies
and the loughs meet the sea;
Where the rivers run clear,
and the bracken is warm in the sun,
And the cares of tomorrow must wait
till this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land
where life is a song,
And sing while the birds fill the air
with their joy all day long;
Where the trees sway in time,
and even the wind sings in tune,
And the cares of tomorrow must wait
till this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land
where legends remain,
The stories of old fill the heart
and may yet come again;
Where the past has been lost,
and the future has still to be won,
And the cares of tomorrow must wait
till this day is done.

Come by the hills to the land
where fancy is free,
And stand where the peaks meet the skies
and the loughs meet the sea;
Where the rivers run clear,
and the bracken is warm in the sun,
And the cares of tomorrow must wait
till this day is done.
And the cares of tomorrow must wait
till this day is done.
