Irish Songs
Sing along to these wonderful Irish songs!
Irish Eyes
by Chaucey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Tis like a morn in spring.
With a lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world is bright and gay
When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away.
Molly Malone
In Dublin's fair city,
Where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel-barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"
"Alive, alive, oh,
Alive, alvie, oh"
Crying "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh."

She was a fishmonger,
But sure 'twas no wonder,
For so were her father and mother before,
And they each wheeled their barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"

She died of a fever,
And no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"




St. Patrick's Day

Irish Songs and Poems for Kids

I'm a Little Leprechaun 

(sing to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot)

I'm a little leprechaun

Dressed in green, 

The tiniest man

That you have ever seen.

If you ever catch me,

So it's told,

I'll give you my big pot of gold.


Saint Patrick was a Gentleman

by: Henry Bennet

Saint Patrick was a gentleman, 

and he came from decent people,

In Dublin town he built a church,

and on it put a steeple;

His father was a Gallagher,

his mother was a Brady,

His aunt was an O'Shaugnessy,

and his uncle was a Grady.

Then success to bold Saint Patrick's fist,

He was a saint so clever,

He gave the snakes and toads a twist,

and banished them forever!



Leprechaun, Leprechaun
Leprechaun, leprechaun, fly across the sea
And fetch an emerald shamrock for you and me.
Do not bring a nettle or a thistle for a joke, 
But bring an Irish shamrock, for we are Irish folk. 
And you and I, my leprechaun,
will wear the shamrock gay,
And match it with an Irish smile upon St. Patrick's Day! 

How Many Miles to Dublin
(Nursery Rhyme)
How many miles to Dublin?
Three score and ten.
Will we be there by candle light?
Yes and back again,
Hupp, hupp my little horses,
Hupp, Hupp again.
May the Road Rise to Meet You
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
The rains fall soft upon the fields, 
And until we meet again, 
May God hold you
In the hollow of his hand.
