Not sure if this is 100% right, but there the words I sing when I do it.

Regards Mick Bracken

LAS VEGAS IN THE HILLS OF DONEGAL

You may talk about Atlantis, how it's lost beneath the sea
And the grave of the unknown soldier, or the cry of the old banshee
Who was the man in the iron mask, was Jack the Ripper set free
But ask them all "Where's Donegal", it's still a mystery

And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, by God I'd build it tall
Casinos, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas, in the hills of Donegal
Yeah Las Vegas, in the hills of Donegal

Playboy clubs, all night pubs, blackjack and roulette
Neil Blaney, Bridget Neilsen, Mike Tyson having a bet
Innishowen could then be known for it's multi millionaires
Where Donald Trump would like a chunk to live in solitaire

To stand on top of Errigal, would give me such a thrill
And hear them say in Dublin, "There's gold in them there hills"
So don't despair, 'cos if you dare, the answer lies with me
There's a wall that's deep and it's going cheap, somewhere in Germany

You may talk about Atlantis, how it's lost beneath the sea
Or the grave of the unknown soldier and the cry of the old banshee
Who was the man in the iron mask, was Jack the ripper set free?
But ask them all where's Donegal, and it's still a mystery

And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, my god I'd build it tall
Casinoes, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal
Yeah!! Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal

Lay by clubs and all night pubs, black jack and roulette
Mel Gibson, Brigitte Nilsen, Mike Tyson having a bet (bite)
Iniseoghain would then be known for it's multi-millionaires
Where Donald Trump would have a chunk to live in solitaire

And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, my god I'd build it tall
Casinoes, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal
Yeah!! Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal

To stand on top of fairy hill would give me such a thrill
I've heard them say in Dublin there's gold in them there hills
So don't despair, 'cos if you dare, the answer lies with me
There's a wall that's steep and it's going cheap somewhere in Germany

And if I could I'd build a wall around old Donegal
The north and south to keep them out, my god I'd build it tall
Casinoes, chicken ranches, I'd legalize them all
We'd have our own Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal
Yeah!! Las Vegas in the hills of Donegal
