Words by Walter Fletcher. Music by E. R. Steiner.

She's a wee bit of an Irish girl, she's from the County Clare;
Her eyes are blue as violets, and coal black is her hair;
She's a primrose from Ireland, my colleen dhas machree;
Descended from the poet Moore, the bard of minstrelsy.

And she's Irish, she's Irish, my pretty Peggy Dare:
She's Irish, she's Irish, she's from the County Clare;
Mavourneen, Mavourneen, with your eyes of Irish blue;
My darling, my Peggie, my love for you is true.

Her mother was a Flaherty, her father was a Drake;
Her grandpapa a Slattery, descended from O'Blake;
Her uncle was a Dugan, her aunt a Miss Magee:
Six cousins of Maginnis from the town of old Tralee.-Refrain.

She's related to the Kellys, the O'Briens and Duprays;
O'Flannigan, the fairy, likewise the great O'Shea:
The Hogans and the Grogans, Lady Duffren and Pat Fee,
And all the Irish families upon the river Lea.-Refrain.
