DESMOND. Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Deasmhumhnaigh ‘descendant of the man from southern Munster’, from deas ‘south’ + Mumhain ‘Munster’, an ancient Irish kingdom named for Mumhu, one of its early kings.

 If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row,
would you be proud of them, or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made in climbing family trees,
and some of them, you know, do not particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row,
here might be some of them, perhaps, you wouldn't want to know,

But there's another question which requires a different view,

If you could meet your ancestors, would they be proud of you?
