Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

To help in your celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day we have an Irish song lyric, so tune your voice, drink a few green beers and let the melodious voices resound!

IRISH EYES ARE SMILING
There’s a tear in your eye,
And I’m wondering why,
That it ever should be there at all.
With such power in your smile,
Sure a stone you’d beguile.
And there’s never a tear drop should fall.
When your sweet, lilting laughter’s
Like some fairy song
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be;
Oh then laugh all the while
And all other times smile
And now smile a smile for me.
CHORUS
When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure it’s like a morn in spring,
In the lily of Irish laughter
You can hear the angel’s sing.
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world seems bright and gay,
And when Irish eyes are smiling
Sure they steal your heart away.
For your smile is a part
Of the love in your heart,
And it makes even sunshine more bright.
Like the linnet’s sweet song,
Crooning all the day long,
Comes your laughter and light
For the springtime of life
Is the sweetest of all
There is ne’er a real care or regret;
Ad while springtime is ours
Throughout all of youth’s hours,
Let us smile each chance we get.
