Green Hills By The Sea, kied teihys daanyn Faragher
I love this purple-misted Isle,
This land where I was born.
The gorse-clad hills and bracken tops,
The fields of waving corn.
But best of all I love to hear
The gentle, lilting voice
Of kindly Manx folk greeting me:
It makes my heart rejoice,
To feel once more the friendly hand,
To hear the welcome warm,
To look into each smiling face
And know I have come home.

"It isn' me dyin' that I min', boy,"
She said as she sat by her bed;
"I'd go peaceful if it wasn' for thinkin'
Ye'll be managin' so maul when I'm dead."
An' Billy sthroked her cheek - so the tale goes -
An' whispered all lovin' an' low,
"Dunt be grievin', Nellie Kate; theer's no need to gel,
To worry about me when yer go!
For theer's the nices' li'l wumman in Laxaa
That I've had me eye on this las' bit;
She'll look after me well, I can tell yer,
So take yer res', Nellie Kate, an' dunt fret!"
My gough! She gorrup from that bed theer
Like an arra shot straight from the bow!
Ay! an' Billy himself was years buried
'Fore herself in the en' had to go!
