Lyrics

VERSE 1
When I left my sweetheart Mary in old Ireland o’re the sea,
The last words that she said was,
“Don’t forget to send for me.”
So I’m saving up and hope someday to bring her here in style,
In my heart I have a longing for my Mary all the while;
My Mary Killarney is a dream,
No finer Irish girl you’ve ever seen.

CHORUS
Since I fell in love with Mary,
Sure, I don’t know what to do,
Mary is an Irish lady through and through,
On her tongue she has the Blarney,
Born in old Killarney,
The devil a one can say a word against my Mary Kearney,
Since I fell in love with Mary,
Sure, I don’t know what to do.

VERSE 2
On the day that Mary Kearney sets her foot upon our shore,
It’s meself that will be happy, sure,
I’ll ask for nothing more.
As I used to do in Ireland, in Killarney by the sea,
I will roll her in my arms, for she is all this world to me;
My Mary Killarney is a dream,
No finer Irish girl you’ve ever seen.

CHORUS
