    Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

    From glen to glen, and down the mountain side

    The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying

    'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.

    But come ye back when summer's in the meadow

    Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow

    'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow

    Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

    And if you come, when all the flowers are dying

    And I am dead, as dead I well may be

    You'll come and find the place where I am lying

    And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

    And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me

    And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be

    If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me

    I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

    I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

    It is an Irish song called Danny Boy. It is quite an old song and while it is lovely to listen to, I have been told that it has connections to the IRA.
