Swimming in the Barrow

I woke in my hat and my boots because I knew that I'd miss the show,
I didn't know what day it was and I didn't need to know,
Oh the Irish summer is like no other for skipping down to the sea,
but a hot day down by the Barrow so brown's like heaven on earth to me.

So down we go in the summer's glow, you'll run to keep up with me.
We're set for the day and we know we can stay with a bun and a bottle of tea,
Oh the Irish summer is like no other for skipping down to the sea.
But a hot day down by the Barrow so brown's like heaven on earth to me.

So we run outside and say, "Who cares about the weather?"
Tell me you'll be mine for a thousand years.
And the water's fine, wish this day could last forever.
And stay Summertime for a thousand years.

Jump y'little boy sink down into the Barrow.
Jump y'little boy down deep into the Barrow.
Swim y'little boy now swimmin' in the Barrow.
Swim y'little boy down deep into the Barrow.

The girls arrive so very alive with red ribbons and shiny hair,
you'll be risking your life with a class of a dive, I hope that I'll see you there,
Oh the Irish summer is like no other for skipping down to the sea,
but a hot day down by the Barrow so brown's like heaven on earth to me.

I woke in my hat and my boots because I knew that I'd miss the show,
I didn't know what day it was and I didn't need to know,
Oh the Irish summer is like no other for skipping down to the sea,
but a hot day down by the Barrow so brown's like heaven on earth to me.

So we run outside and say, "Who cares about the weather?"
Tell me you'll be mine for a thousand years.
And the water's fine, wish this day could last forever.
And stay Summertime for a thousand years.

Jump y'little boy sink down into the Barrow.
Jump y'little boy down deep into the Barrow.
Swim y'little boy now swimmin' in the Barrow.
Swim y'little boy down deep into the Barrow.
