As sung by Harrigan and Hart.

We came from dear old Ireland,
We're strangers in this land;
We know that all Americans
Put forth their welcome hand,
To the poor of suffering Ireland,
Time and time again;
We thank you for our countrymen,
And Donevan is our name.

We're the Donevans,
We're the Donevans
From the Emerald Isle,
Across the Sea;
We're the Donevans
From a noble family.

Our ancestors were noble;
In the days of King O'Neal
They fought for Erin's freedom,
In a suit of silver mail!
Its royal blood flows in our veins,
We're proud of that self-same-
We introduce ourselves to you-
Donevan is our name.-Chorus.

Oh, Erin! lovely Erin!
Bright diamond of the sea,
We always sing your praises
Wherever we may be;
From the lovely banks of Shannon
To America we came-
To look around and settle down-
And Donevan is our name. - Chorus.
