Written by J. C. Rich. Composed by. Henry E. Pether.

oh! why are the bells ringing so sweetly?
Why am I feeling so blithe And gay?
Why am I dressed so trim and neatly?
Because, you must know I've got married to-day.
I have just left a party of friends And relations
To tell you the news, so I must not stop long;
Tho' my bride's not a lady of high rank and station,
You've oft heard her praises related in song.

And that is why the bells are ringing,
Because I have taken a partner for life;
Ev'ry one's smiling and dancing And singing,
To-day I've made sweet Annie Rooney my wife.

Sure, never I've felt blest so completely
As when sweet Annie replied, "I will!"
Vowing to love and cherish sweetly,
Like music her tones on my ear linger still.
Och! they're having some fun, are the lads and the lasses,
The pipers before never played in such tune;
Friends are waiting for me, gaily clinking their glasses,
To wish us "God speed," on our bright honeymoon.- Chorus.

And where will we go? over to Ireland,
Where we have oft wished to go before;
Seeking like pilgrims shrines of sireland,
The darling ould country our parents adore.
We shall visit the hills and the lakes of Killaney,
And see all the sights that are there to be shown;
And for fear we should ever run short of "the blarney,"
We'll both, just for luck, kiss the famed blarney stone.- Chorus.
