Memories come my way - thoughts of early days,
The first song that I ever heard,
With a child's eyes to see sweet simplicity,
Stayed with me all through the years.

How I wish that I could fly back to days gone by,
Just like a bird on the wing;
The wind across the sea brings it home to me,
A song that my grandmother used to sing.

Sometimes in my sleep the echo of the deep,
Drums on a dark island shore;
Where the piper calls the tune,
Wild roses bloom on a hill far away from the war,

How I wish that I could fly back to days gone by,
Just like a bird on the wing;
Whenever I go astray I'm never far away,
From a song that my grandmother used to sing.

How I wish that I could fly back to days gone by,
Just like a bird on the wing;
The wind across the sea brings it home to me,
A song that my grandmother used to sing.
Oh yes, a song that my grandmother used to sing.
