The streets were black with people twas the finest day so far 
All watching for the creatures 
On their way to Noah's arc 
She came hoppin' she came dancin' 
Near the head of the parade 
Twirling an umbrella 
And singing about the rain 
I saw her in the Macnas Parade 
Singin' and dancen' as the drummers played 
Hoppin' and skippin' sure 
She made my day 
I saw her in the 
Macnas Parade 
All the gang were rushing 
To board at claddagh basin 
There were preachers preaching 
"Please repent" 
and even snails were racin' 
god watched it from above 
A handshaped cloud 
descended from the sky 
Nothing that i saw was 
More pleasing to my eye 
I saw her in the Macnas ........... 
I saw her in the warick 
The first Friday last week 
I tried to ask her dancin' 
But i could hardly speak 
I wonder what they'll think up 
For the big parade next year 
I'll tell you wan thing 
That's for sure 
I'll be a volunteer
