Ellan Vannin
(Dear Isle Of Man)

 When the summer day is over
 It's busy cares have flown
 I will sit beneath the starlight
 With a weary heart alone

 Then it rises like a vision
 Sparkling bright it shines for me
 My own dear Ellan Vannin
 With it's green hills by the sea

 Let me hear the ocean murmur
 Let me watch your stormy sky
 Then above the emerald waters
 Sings the seagull as she flies

 Then it rises like a vision
 Sparkling bright it shines for me
 My own dear Ellan Vannin
 With it's green hills by the sea

 And in all my times of sorrow
 And on some lonely shore
 I'll go back to Ellan Vannin
 To my childhood days once more
