Halls Bay Fisherman (Siochána)

When I was young my work begun,
I'm standing on the pier;
And as I look west upon the cape
the fishing boats are near.
And now I am... a fisherman,
across that glistening sea...
I will always be... a fisherman.

Now in my prime, there's not much time
for leisure and for rest;
And I start my day at the break of dawn,
and I don't return till dusk.
And now I am... a fisherman,
across that glistening sea...
I will always be... a fisherman.

In my old age my memory fades,
there's things I can't recall;
Lest I forget them days of old,
I fished upon the Halls.
And now I am... a fisherman,
across that glistening sea...
I will always be... a fisherman.

And now I am... a fisherman,
across that glistening sea...
I will always be... Yes,
I will always be... a fisherman.
