(D)Come for a trip on Uncle Nobby´s Steamboat

(A)where you can hide your worries on a high float

and (D)we´ll take a trip to leprachauns and shamrocks

and (A)hide our minds and (G)troubles for a (D)while

 

Chorus:

And we´re (C)going (G)where the (Am)grass is (G)growing (D)green

the (D)fairies and the witch, the banshee´s drinking brandy

Uncle (A)Nobby at (G)last he´s in com(D)mand

 

Chorus

 

Now we´re (D)off to Tir na Nóg, the goddess of love is gráinne

Cu(A)chulainn can´t get in in his coat he has no fainne

The (D)leprachauns go by in a twinkling mystic vision

The (A)shamrock lies a-(G)mourning in the (D)grave

Uncil Nobby's Steamboat Lyrics Only
Come for a trip on Uncle Nobby´s Steamboat
where you can hide your worries on a high float
and we´ll take a trip to leprachauns and shamrocks
and hide our minds and troubles for a while

chorus:
And we´re going where the grass is growing green
to a misty land that no one else has seen
where oblivion takes the mind´s reality
and reality fades into a memory

Captain Bluebeard gives a smile
at the gangway side to meet you
the first mate by his side
with a workcard if he needs you
they´ll take you to your berth
your cabin´s cool and cosy
full steam ahead we´re ready for to go

Bring on the dancing girls the show is now in motion
the choo choo train is gone
it´s halfway through the mountains
the fairies and the witch, the banshee´s drinking brandy
Uncle Nobby at last he´s in command

We´re off to Tir na Nóg, the goddes of love is  gráinne
cuchulainn can´t get in in his coat he has no fainne
the leprachauns go by in a twinkling mystic vision
the shamrock lies a-mourning in the grave
