Ballad

Toora loora loora
Toora loora ly
Toora loora loora
And it's hush now don't you cry
Toora loora loora
Toora loora ly
Toora loora loora
It's an Irish lullaby

Over in Killarney many years ago
My mother sang a song to me in tones so sweet and low
Just a simple little ditty in her good old Irish way
But l'd give the world if she could sing that song to me today:

Refrain:
Toora loora loora
Toora loora ly
Toora loora loora
And it's hush now don't you cry
Toora loora loora
Toora loora ly
Toora loora loora
It's an Irish lullaby
