Over in Killarney, Many years ago,
Me Mither sang a song to me in tones so sweet and low,
Just a simple little ditty, In her good ould Irish way,
And I'd give the world if she could sing that song to me this day.
"Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Hush now don't you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, That's an Irish lullaby."
