When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

~ Saturday, March 17, 2007

Chorus:
When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure it’s like a morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter,
You can hear the angels 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.

1)
There’s a tear in your eye, and I’m wondering why,
For it never should be there at all.
With such power in your smile, sure a stone you’d beguile,
So there’s never a teardrop should fall.
When your sweet lilting laughter’s like some fairy song,
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be,
You should laugh all the while and all other times smile,
And now smile a smile for me.

2)
For your smile is a part of the love in your heart,
And it makes even springtime more bright.
Like the linnet’s sweet song, crooning all the day long,
Comes your laughter so tender and light.
For the springtime of life is the sweetest of all,
There is ne’re a real care or regret.
And while springtime is ours, throughout all of youth’s hours,
Let us smile each chance we get.
