Words by Frank Abbott. Music by Louie Maurice,

There's a sweet little leaflet, which poets have sung of,
On history's pages its name may be seen,
'Tis known as the symbol and loved as the emblem
Of a dear little Island all covered with green.
It's good luck to find it, a pleasure to see it,
An honor to wear it next true Irish hearts,
Our forefathers wore it, their banners all bore it,
I'll love, I'll adore it till life from me parts.

The shamrock, the shamrock,
so modest and lowly, so pure and so holy,
The shamrock, the shamrock,
My emblem and Ireland's, the shamrock.

There's a sweet blue-eyed colleen who's won my affections,
She's fair and she's Irish, what more can I say;
She's willful and trying, and sometimes she'll tease me,
But, bless her true heart, why that's only her way;
I saw her last evening and asked her to give me
A token of love as a link to our hearts.
She took from her bosom and gave me a shamrock,
I'll love, I'll adore her till life from me parts.- Chorus.
