Found these. Looks like anything can be found on the web. Seems like you have waited some time to get these. Nobody else have them?
Noel P.

Davey Carton, Leo Moran (members of Saw Doctors)

CHORUS: Will you meet me on Clare Island?
Summer stars are in the sky.
We'll get the ferry out from Roonagh
And wave all our cares goodbye.

We'll go dancing at the céilí.
We'll go kissing on the strand,
Take our clothes off in the moonlight,
Skinny-dippin' hand in hand.

We'll start drinkin' in the twilight,
Keep it up until the dawn,
In both the bars because there's no guards
To take our names and send us home. CHORUS

Gettin' weary of the city,
Seems so many things have changed.
Let's head off for Nora Daly's home.
Where she walked it never rained. CHORUS

And if there's wild and tall white horses,
And the swell rolls in the bay,
I won't care if the boat can't sail.
We'll get home some other day. CHORUS

Bob Harke (Kennedy's Kitchen) added two more verses to this song, which they recorded on Kennedy's Kitchen CD in 2003

See the white of the hawthorn
And the yellow of the gorse
We'll watch the sheep cross the boreen
And let our love run its course

As the mist rolls in the harbor
And the herring fills the nets
We'll go down to O'Malley's Pub
Draw a pint and place a bet

Cheers, S. in Seattle
