Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra
 
Written by James Royce Shannon
 
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra, hush now, don’t you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra, that’s an Irish lullaby.
 
Over in Killarney 
Many years ago, 
Me Mother 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.
 
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.
