We came from Connemarra
A few short months ago,
With spirits light and airy,
Two emigrants, you know;
Pray, let us ask your pardon,
Smile on us if you chose,
We come to Castle Garden,
We're the two Irish cuckoos.

For we've just landed, just landed-
We landed over thefe, you know;
We've landed, just landed,
We're the two Irish cuckoos.

Cutting turf was our occupation.
In the bogs of Allen then;
But they say that in this nation
We'll at least be Aldermen;
We will run for big positions,
In offices of note;
We'll join the politicians,
And of course for us you'll vote.-Chorus^

When we go back to Ireland,
Sure then it will be said
We'll raise up in our sire-land
The green above the red;
Then all this world will glory,
Whene'er they hear the news
Of Ireland, and the story of
The two Irish cuckoos.-Chorus.
