  1. (continued from previous page)
    Then was heard a great commotion:
    An awful sight was seen
    Poor Dan O'Brien, beside him lying
    The lovely Elton queen
    She has the fits, I'll lose my wits,
    My heart has got a scar
    Oh the devil sweep the D'arcy Cup
    and Mullinivats jaunting car.

  2. Oh lovely Donohill thy mountains so fair.
    And swift running brooks and the sweet
    scented air.
    The graveyard on the hill
    And the creamery near by.
    The church it show of its topoloftical spire
    The hall it is beautiful
    And the music is sweet
    The lassies are nice
    Its them you would like to meet
    The moat of Donohill
    Is famed far and wide
    It is grand to be living right by its side
    Then on to the little village
    We will now take a walk
    And meet some of the lads
    To chat and to talk.
