Irish Lullaby (Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral)

Written By: J. R. Shannon in 1913, Copyright Unknown
Over in Killarney Many years ago, Me Mither (My Mother) sang a song to me In tones so sweet and low. Just a simple little ditty, In her good 'ould' (old) Irish way, And I'd give the world if she could sing That song to me this day.
"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. 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.
