Ships in full Sail


The bright sun a-shining and blue skies a-pining 
For the want of some clouds or some ornamentation 
The heathers a-blazing and cows are a-gazing 
As I sit on the hill overlooking the bay 

There out on the ocean the ships are in motion 
From Killybegs harbour right down to Kinsale 
Down in the harbour the crowds they have gathered 
To watch the winds blowing the ships in full sail 

Some then sail for pleasure and others for treasure 
And some do the wishin and some are the fishermen 
But what e'er your making you'll need no awaking 
To the dangers involved for the ships on the sea 

There out on the ocean the ships are in motion 
From Killybegs harbour right down to Kinsale 
Down in the harbour the crowds they have gathered 
To watch the winds blowing the ships in full sail  

The seagulls are squawking they seem to be talking 
Of this grandorous sight which seems oh so leisurely 
In summer it's pleasing but in winter it's teasing 
And storms will be blowing the ships in the sea 

There out on the ocean the ships are in motion 
From Killybegs harbour right down to Kinsale 
Down in the harbour the crowds they have gathered 
To watch the winds blowing the ships in full sail
