I hear a bird 
Londonderry bird 
It, well, maybe he's bringing me a cheering word 
I hear a breeze 
A river Shannon breeze 
It, well, maybe its followed me across the sea 
Then tell me please 

How are things in Glocca Morra? 
Is that little brook still leaping there? 
Does it still run down to Donny Cove 
Through Kenny banks, Kilcarrey and Kildare? 
How are things in Glocca Morra? 
Is that willow tree still weeping there? 
Does that laddy with the twinklin' eye 
Come whistling by? 
And does he walk away 
Sad and dreamy there 
Not to see me there? 

So I ask each weeping willow 
And each brook along the way 
And each lad that comes a whistling 
To relay 
How are things in Glocca Morra 
This fine day?
