Van Morrison - "Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral" lyrics

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 ould irish way,

And ld 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, dont you cry!

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, too-ra-loo-ra-li,

Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, thats 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.
