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.

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.
