W:Our ship she's ready to sail away,
W:and it's come my sweet comrades, o'er the stormy seas.
W:Her snow-white wings are all unfurled,
W:and soon shall swim in a watery world.

W:Chorus:
W:Don't forget love, do not grieve,
W:for my heart is true and cannot deceive.
W:My hand and heart, I will give to thee
W:so farewell my love and remember me.

W:Farewell sweet Dublin's hills and braes
W:to Killiney mountain's silvery streams,
W:Where's many the fine long summer's day
W:we loitered hours of joy away.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:It's now I must bid a long adieu
W:to Wicklow and its beauties too
W:Avoca's vales where lovers meet
W:There to discourse in accents sweet
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Farewell sweet Delgany, likewise the glen
W:the Dargle waterfall and then
W:the lovely scene surrounding Bray
W:shall be my thoughts when far away.
W:
W:Chorus
