Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Summer stars are in the sky
We'll take the ferry out from Roonagh
And wave all our cares good-bye

We go dancing at the céilí
We go kissing on the strand
Take our clothes off in the moonlight
Skinny dip there hand in hand

We start drinking in the twilight
Keep it up until the dawn
Go to bars because there's no guards
To take our names and send us home

Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Summer stars are in the sky
Get the ferry out from Roonagh
And wave all our cares good-bye

I'm getting weary of the city
Seems so many things have changed
Let's head off for Nora Daly's home
Where she walked it never rained

Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Summer stars are in the sky
Get the ferry out from Roonagh
And wave all our cares good-bye

And if there's wide and tall white horses
And a swell rose in the bay
I won't care if the boat can't sail
We'll get home some other day

Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Summer stars are in the sky
Get the ferry out from Roonagh
And wave all our cares good-bye

Whoa-oh oh, oh-oh, oh oh
Whoa-oh oh, oh-oh, oh oh
Whoa-oh oh, oh-oh, oh oh

Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Oh will ya meet me
Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Oh will ya meet me
Will ya meet me on Clare Island
Oh will ya meet me
When the stars are in the sky
