The Ducks Of Magheralin

Oh it is a famous city in the fine old ancient style,
A credit to sweet County Down and the pride of Erin's Isle,
It had a spacious harbour for the bread carts to sail in,
And if ever you go to Ireland you'll sail through Magheralin.

(Taken from the song "The Ducks of Magheralin")
