The Place to Be (alternative lyrics for outside Ireland)

[Bold text is a response]

Verse 1

Our land is a really lovely country. I agree
From here to there, all around
And in between.
With lakes and beautiful beaches,
Hills and rivers too.
Nice and friendly people
It’s the place for me and you.
Take it from me.
It’s plain to see.
We all agree.
This is the place to be.
