You may talk about Atlantis, how it’s lost beneath the sea

Or the grave of the unknown soldier and the cry of the old banshee

Who was the man in the iron mask, was Jack the ripper set free?
But ask them all where’s Donegal, and it’s still a mystery

 Chorus:And if I could I’d build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, my god I’d build it tall
Casinoes, chicken ranches, I’d legalize them all
We’d have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal
Yeah!! Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal

 Lay by clubs and all night pubs, black jack and roulette
Mel Gibson, Brigitte Nilsen, Mike Tyson having a bet (bite)
Iniseoghain would then be known for it’s multi-millionaires
Where Donald Trump would have a chunk to live in solitaire


 To stand on top of fairy hill would give me such a thrill
I’ve heard them say in Dublin there’s gold in them there hills
So don’t despair, ‘cos if you dare, the answer lies with me
There’s a wall that’s steep and it’s going cheap somewhere in Germany
