New Year In Millstreet

Rain, hail, wind, frost or snow the members of the Millstreet pipe band will play
At the Square of Millstreet Town to welcome New Year's Day
The pubs are closed and in mood for song the New Year revelers sing along
As the pipers play For Auld lang Syne Robert Burns New Year's song

For Auld lang Syne the pipers play as the seconds are counted down
To twelve a m and New Year's Day in the Square of Millstreet Town
It is the one night of the year that most people stay up late
To join in the festivities and the birth of a New Year celebrate

And at twelve a m the cheering loud in the Town Square of Millstreet
At a moment when friends and strangers hug and shake hands in a gesture of goodwill they greet
The winds blow cold in Duhallow but the Pipers band does play
In the wide Square in Millstreet Town for to welcome New Year's Day

A new Year it has just been born the old year it is dead
And hopes for peace and harmony and for all better days ahead
And in the Square at Millstreet Town merriment does abound
Just after twelve a m on New Year's morn the sound of joy profound.

Above the streets of Millstreet Town the dawn is breaking gray
And not one person to be seen on the morn of New Year's Day
A cold wind soughing in the bare trees the only sound one does hear
And low clouds tell that rain is near on the first day of a New Year.
