There's a tear in your eye
And I'm wondering why
For it never should be there at all.
With such pow'r 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.
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.
