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, and everything you saw
Tell us all the things you used to do

So I closed my eyes and rolled the years away
And everything's as clear as yesterday
For how could I forget that summer when we met
It was Dublin town in 1962.

All our days were sunny, and 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
Danced in Clery's and the Metropole till two
We crossed the Ha'penny Bridge at evening tide
It felt so good to have you by my side
We watched the mailboats sail
Paperboys cried Herald and Mail
In Dublin town in 1962

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

Like many more we kissed it all goodbye
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 play as we once used to do

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

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