How can you buy Killarney

Lyrics

An American landed on Erin’s green isle
He gazed at Killarney with rapturous smile
“How can I buy it?” he said to his guide
“I’ll tell you how” with a smile he replied

How can you buy all the stars in the skies ?
How can you buy two bright Irish eyes ?
How can you purchase a fond mother’s sighs ?
How can you buy Killarney ?
Nature bestowed all her gifts with a smile
The shamrock, the emblem of our emerald isle
When you can buy all these wonderful things
Then you can buy Killarney

Instrumental bridge

Nature bestowed all her gifts with a smile
The emerald, the shamrock, the Blarney.
When you can buy all these wonderful things
Then you can buy Killarney
