※ Bing Crosby の歌詞

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

 

Over in Killarney, many years ago
My mother sang a song to me

In tones so soft and low

 

Just a simple little ditty

In her good old Irish way
And I'd give the world if I could hear

That song of hers today

 

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

 

※ Patti Page の歌詞

Over in Killarney Many years ago
Me Mither sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low

 

Just a simple little ditty
In her good 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
