Balbriggan Lighthouse, without the dome,

Is like having a house that isn't a home.

Like the old town clock with only one hand,

Or our wonderful beach, without any sand.

To us who have reached that certain age,

When they stole our dome, it sent us in a rage.

Whatever were the old town fathers about,

For they let the dome go without a shout?

For if we are together, we can't be ignored,

We should rekindle the light, starting today,

And rebuild the dome, without any delay.
