Me kids said "Dad, just tell us one more time
About when you were young and in your prime
And the way that you met Ma, all the things you saw
Tell us about the things you used to do"

I closed my eye and rolled the years away
And everything's the same as yesterday
How could I forget the summer when we met
In Dublin town in 1962.

All our days were sunny, all our skies were blue
In Dublin town in 1962.

We climbed the hill of Howth and down again
We walked home from the Pillar in the rain
We courted in the park when the lights glow in the dark
We danced in Clery's and the Metropole to two

We crossed the Ha'penny bridge at evening tide
It felt so good to have you by my side
And we watched the mailboats sail
Paperboys shout Herald or Mail
In Dublin town in 1962.

All our days were sunny, all our skies were blue
In Dublin town in 1962.

Like many more we kissed it all goodbye
We sailed away to give our luck a try
In this land across the sea that's been good to you and me
Where our children played as we once used to do

While my kids said "Dad that's really quite a tale
We can see you have the spirit of the Gael
We know there's no regrets and we're very glad you met
In Dublin town in 1962
In Dublin town in 1962
