I am going to Ireland on a ship I'm going far away
I am going to Ireland one of these days
I am going to jump right in
And take a swim in my river in my Ireland

How can we know where we are going
When we don't know where we have been

We learn history from textbooks in school
Written by the rich and the men that rule
While our grandparents sit in nursing homes
And our history is lost and we are lost and lost we'll roam

How can we know where we are going
When we don't know where we have been

Lover won't you come to my window tonight
Sing me that song in summer moonlight
Because I don't know much about love and romance
My parents were victims of circumstance

How can we know where we are going
When we don't know where we have been

I am going to Ireland on a ship I'm going far away
I am going to Ireland one of these days
I am going to jump right in
And take a swim in my river in my Ireland
