Inscription(s)

When at home alone I sit
And I am very tired of it
I have just to shut my eyes
To go sailing through the skies-
To go sailing far away
To the pleasant land of play

Dedicated to children of all ages

Im' shuí dhom sa bhaile go haonraie
's mé tuirseach tháite dobhrónach,
Ní fhá ach mo shúile a dhúnadh
lem' aistriú i bhfad tríd na spéartha,
Lem' aistriú i bhad, i bhfad l gcéin
Go tír dheas aoibhín ma n-Óg

Tiomnaithe don uile Pháiste
