• 201 Irish Song Lyrics

    Sure, a little bit o' Heaven fell from out of the sky one dayAnd nestled on the ocean in a spot so far awayAnd the angels found it, sure it looked so sweet and fairThey said suppose we leave it, for it looks so peaceful there!So they sprinkled it with star dust, just to make the shamrocks grow'Tis the only place you'll find themNo matter where you goThen they dotted it with silverTo make its lakes so grandAnd when they had it finishedSure they called it Ireland! Ireland has always been the home of the dreamer, the poet and the story teller. An ancient land long soaked in sorrow but even in the hardest times the Irish people have always had a way of using their eloquence and grasp of language to create a shield between them and the outside world. This book of Irish Song Lyrics provides over 200 songs from the Old Country.The songs retain some of the magic, much of the power and the ability to raise the odd smile, they had when they were first sung many years ago. The majority of these songs are purely Irish in origin, a few are not specifically Irish but are commonly used and capture the spirit of this land.I hope you enjoy reading them and they pass onto you the tragedy, magic and humour of Ireland and the Irish.
