Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Eilleen Allanna,
Eilleen Asthore
Light of my soul and its
Queen evermore,
It seems years have lingered since last we did part,
Eilleen Allanna,
The pride of my heart!
Oh! darling lov'd one, your dear smile I miss;
My lips seem to cling to that sweet parting kiss!
Mavourneen, thy sweet face I see at the door,
Eileen Allanna
Augus Asthore.

[Chorus 1]
Faiful I'll be to the Coleen I adore,
Eilleen Allanna,
Augus Asthore,
Faithful I'll be to the Eilleen Allanna,
Augus Asthore,
Faithful I'll be to the Colleen I adore,
Eilleen Allanna,
Ausgus Asthore.

[Verse 2]
Eileen Alanna,
Eilleen Asthore,
The ocean's blue waters was by the shore
Of that dear land of shamrock where tough dost abide,
Waiting the day when I'll call you my bride!
God bless you, darling,
I know you are true,
True to the boy who would die now for you;
Mt heart is now bleeding to its innermost core,
Eilleen Allanna,
Ausgus Ashore.

[Chorus 2]
Soon I'll be back to the Coleen I adore,
Eilleen Allanna,
Augus Asthore,
Soon I'll be back to the
Eilleen Allanna, Augus Asthore,
Soon I'll be back to the Colleen I adore,
Eilleen Allanna, Ausgus Asthore.
