TOO-A-LOO-RA-LOO-RAL
That's An Irish Lullaby

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 l'd give the world if she could sing
That song to me this day.

Chorus:
"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."

Oft in dreams I wander
To that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin' me
As when she held me then.
And I hear her voice a -hummin'
To me as in days of yore,
When she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door.

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

 

An Irish Blessing

May you always have work
for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always
a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your
windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain
to follow the rain.

May the hand of a friend
always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with
gladness to cheer you.
