Secret song of Ireland – To Mr Spade

We saw Spade McQuade fade into the shadows

and we barely heard his voice

one last time he rose from the moor

then fell into the moist

I heard the secret song of Ireland

whispered from his lips

that was the last we saw of him

as we returned to eat our chips.
