Lyrics

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

For your smile is a part, of the love in your heart
And it makes even sunshine more bright
Like the linnets 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'er a real care or regret
And while springtime is ours throughout all of youth's hours
Let us smile each chance we get

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
