The Boys from the top of the Rock was composed by Ned Drummond.
If you want to be happy the rest of your life
Come up to the top of the Rock
It’s the grandest spot in Ireland
And full of the rare ould stock
No matter what your past may be
If you haven’t the price of a block
They’ll never see you down and out
Above at the top of the Rock.
Our glorious Gaelic footballers are champions of Tralee
They’ve beaten all before them
From Strand Road to Boherbee
Purty plays full-forward
And Barrett stands the shock
You can back your bottom dollar
On the boys from the top of the Rock
Our sporty men of different shades
Their equals can’t be found
Lovers of the feathered race
The horse, the rod and hound.
You have Rory O’Connell’s Fanbelt
And Paddy Casey’s gamecock
Bred, borned, and reared
Above at the top of the Rock
