It's Good to See You (Sons Of Erin)

It's good to see you, so good to see you,
Oh, how I miss you since I've been gone;
I've crossed the oceans, travelled to many lands,
It's good to see you, to be in your home.

There's something in me that needs to wander,
There's many a land I long to see;
And when I'm far away in a land of strangers,
I know my good friends will think of me.

It's good to see you, so good to see you,
Oh, how I miss you since I've been gone;
I've crossed the oceans, travelled to many lands,
It's good to see you, to be in your home.

Oh. when a man is down, down on his fortune,
He stands on his own, sometimes alone;
He looks around him, looking for an open hand,
Sometimes there's some, sometimes there's not.

It's good to see you, so good to see you,
Oh, how I miss you since I've been gone;
I've crossed the oceans, travelled to many lands,
It's good to see you, to be in your home.

Oh, and it's a wonder when it comes to friendship,
No matter how far away, no matter how long,
There's a constant thread that's never been broken,
It ties me to my friends at home.

It's good to see you, so good to see you,
Oh, how I miss you since I've been gone;
I've crossed the oceans, travelled to many lands,
It's good to see you, to be in your home.
