THE DONOVAN'S From the film "Top O' The Morning" (Francis Fahy / Alicia Adelaide Needham) Bing Crosby, Barry Fitzgerald & Ann Blyth (Film Soundtrack) - 1949 Bing Crosby - 1949 Well if you would like to see The height of hospitality The cream of kindly welcome And the core of cordiality The joys of all the olden times You're wishin' to recall again Come down to Donovan's And there you'll meet them all again Oh, céad mile fáilte They'll greet you down at Donovan's As cheery as the springtime As Irish as the conovan The wish of my heart is If ever I had anyone That ev'ry luck that lightens life May light upon the Donovan As soon as e're you lift the latch The little ones are meetin' you And as soon as you're beneath the thatch Kindly looks are greetin' you Scarcely are you ready To be holdin' out the ?????????? When down by the fireside You're sittin' in the midst of them (Oh, céad mile fáilte) (They greet you at Donovan's) As cheery as the springtime As Irish as the conovan (The wish of my heart is) (If ever I had anyone) That ev'ry luck that lightens life May light upon the Donovan (Hey!) (Hey! Hey!) (Hey!) (Donovan's!) Well, then when you rise to go it's "Hah, hah, hah, now then, sit down again" "Isn't it a haste you're in" and "Won't you soon come round again, hmmmm" Your cobeen and your overcoat You'd better pull it stray from them T'will take you all your time to try And tear yourself away from them Oh, céad mile fáilte They'll greet you down at Donovan's As cheery as the springtime As Irish as the conovan The wish of my heart is If ever I had anyone That ev'ry luck that lightens life May light upon the Donovan That ev'ry luck that lightens life May light upon the Donovan (Hey!) Donovan's! (Transcribed by Kitty & Mel Priddle - August 2006)
