The Waterboys - Spring Comes to Spiddal

The lights are on in Standun`s
And a spell has been broken
The roadside teahouse door
Is wide ipen

A sign on the wall
Says "American also spoken"
As Spring comes to Spiddal
The village girls go walking

By without their coats
The Irish gaelic college
Is alive again with folk
Framers gather talking

Freed from Winter`s yoke
As Spring comes to Spiddal
A tourist with a telescope
And a funny looking German bloke

And a billy goat
All invoke
The Summer soon to bloom
On a soft and fresh Atlantic air

A must of pollen floats
On Galway Bay I spy
A gaily painted fishing boat
There`s a rustle around the boreens

And a song on every throat
As Spring comes
To Spiddal
