Life Flies By

Ballindooley Castle in Galway
Ballindooley Castle in Galway

Villages fly by as I
Life’s eternal wanderer
Who seeks to put down root
From where his people came
Do not stop to see, to walk explore
These places I have passed through before
But just see them pass
Through the grimy window
Of a boneshaking bus.

People fly by as I
Life’s eternal wanderer
Who seeks to put down roots with another
From where his people came
Find it hard to stop, and seek, and woo
These girls that I have met before
But just see them pass
Into the grimy arms
Of another heartbreaker of a man.
