Koroit Festival Day 2019

Behind the gray clouds the sun hidden away
Above Koroit Town on Irish Festival Day
But the sound of the music so pleasant to hear
In this Town in the Moyne Shire's biggest day of the year

The day when Celtic music and song reign supreme over Cricket and A F L Football
On the last Saturday of April in the southern Fall
In Koroit one might say a day for wearing of the green
On people's clothes and the flags and buntings the predominant color to be seen

In Koroit Town onFestival Day Irish culture takes pride of place
Where many their links to Irish heritage feel proud to embrace
Old tunes and songs of Ireland are played and sung all day long
The bondage to culture in all races remains strong

The flags of Irish Counties on the streeets on display
At the grand parade on Irish Festival Day
Though the sky overcast and rain seemingly near
The joy in song and music so pleasant to hear.
