A friend that you can trust in
Mid-summer's burning sky
Understanding of a druid
And the innocence of child
Memories of snowflakes
And of those who understood you
Well they're all gone now
I only wish for you the world of good

Oh, all your precious photographs
And all your favorite dreams
When the years have gone behind you
The chance to be nineteen
And children in your likeness of the same inspiring blood
And a man who makes you happy
I only wish for you a world of good

Oh, the sky at night and the open sea
A clear, refreshing mountain stream
Tir na nog and Robin Hood
I wish for you the world of good


And a box of sìog hand-me-downs
That follows you around
An England road that leads you to
Another stronghold town
And I know you'd take me with you
If you really thought you should
But if you up and go alone
I'll wish for you the world of good

Oh, the sky at night and the open sea
A clear, refreshing mountain stream
Tír na nÓg and Robin Hood
I wish for you the world of good


Through the screaming of your childhood
In a land that's been torn apart
And the chilling cold of violent deeds
Somehow strengthens your warm heart
Your gentle, firm, and peaceful ways
Have long-since well withstood
The darkness in this country
I only wish for you the world of good

Oh, the sky at night and the open sea
A clear, refreshing mountain stream
Tír na nÓg and Robin Hood
I wish for you the world of good

Oh, I love you girl and I always will
You know you're part of my life still
Though times have changed, it's understood
I wish for you the world of good
The world of good
