AmyLove Looking for a happy lovesong in Irish... (43) RE: Looking for a happy lovesong in Irish... 11 Feb 17


Perhaps some can be found in this book:

Happiness is... 70 Irish Songs

The songs:

Peg o' my heart --
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral that's an Irish lullaby --
When Irish eyes are smiling --
It's the same old shillelagh --
Mother Machree --
Ireland must be heaven for my mother came from there --
Peggy O'Neil --
My wild Irish rose --
It's a great day for the Irish --
Wearin' of the green --
The rose of Tralee --
The Kerry dance --
Londonderry Air (Would God I were the tender apple blossom) --
A little bit of heaven (Shure they call it Ireland) --
Did your mother come from Ireland --
When it's moonlight in Mayo (Two Irish eyes are shining) --
River Shannon moon --
Widow Machree --
Be sure and kiss the Blarney Stone --
The top of the mornin' --
A bit o' the brogue --
The harp that once thro' Tara's halls --
The daughter of Peggy O'Neil --
Molly O! --
Don't you love to dream of dear old Ireland --
Let Erin remember the days of old --
When I dream of old Erin I'm dreaming of you --
The girl I left behind me --
That's how I spell I-R-E-L-A-N-D --
Kitty of Coleraine --
Fancy Nancy Clancy --
Nay, tell me not dear --
Springtime in Mayo means lovetime with you --
I wish I were on yonder hill --
Bendemeer's stream --
Night closed around (After the battle) --
The dear little shamrock --
The last rose of summer --
I'll take you home again, Kathleen --
I love my love in the morning --
Norah, the pride of Kildare --
The lass with the delicate air --
The rakes of Mallow--
Oh! 'Tis sweet to think --
It takes a great big Irish heart to sing an Irish song --
Saint Patrick was a gentleman --
Erin! The tear and the smile in thine eyes --
Molly Malone (Cockles and mussels) --
The minstrel boy --
I'm a poor stranger and far from my home --
What an Irishman means by "Machree" --
Off to Philadelphia --
Killarney (By Killarney's lakes and fells) --
Who threw the overalls in Mistress Murphy's chowder --
I dreamt that I dwelt in marble halls --
Father O'Flynn --
There's something in the name of Ireland that the whole world seems to love --
Come back to Erin --
Kathleen Mavourneen --
You don't have to be Irish to be welcome in an Irishman's home --
The pretty girl milking her cow (It was on a fine summer's morning) --
The angels' whisper --
Garry Owen --
Sweetheart darlin' --
Lesbia hath a beaming eye --
The snowy-breasted pearl (Oh! She is not like the rose) --
The low-backed car --
Scanlan's rose song --
Sweet Rosie O'Grady --
Believe me if all those endearing young charms.
