Have you ever seen the seagulls
A-flyin' o'er the heather
Or the crimson sails on Galway Bay
The fishermen unfurl

Oh, the earth is filled with beauty
And its gathered all together
In the form and face and dainty grace
Of a pretty Irish girl

Oh, she's my dear, my darlin' one
Her eyes so sparklin' full of fun
No other, no other
Can match the likes of her

She's my dear, my darlin' one
My smilin' and beguilin' one
I love the ground she walks upon
My pretty Irish girl

Have you ever seen the morning in
Kerry and Killarny
When the dew is on the hayrick
And ev'ry drop a pearl

When the geese are full of blarney
And the thrush is singing Gaelic
And standing in the doorway
Is a Pretty Irish Girl

Oh, she's my dear, my darlin' one
Her eyes so sparklin' full of fun
No other, no other
Can match the likes of her

She's my dear my darlin' one
My smilin' and beguilin' one
I love the ground she walks upon
My pretty Irish girl

When I'm parted from my darlin'
My sighs would sail a schooner
And when I cannot reach her, sure
My tears would turn a mill

Since she cannot be unkind
To any helpless creature
I think that I will marry me
A pretty Irish Girl

Oh, she's my dear, my darlin' one
Her eyes so sparklin' full of fun
No other, no other
Can match the likes of her

She's my dear my darlin' one
My smilin' and beguilin' one
I love the ground she walks upon
My pretty Irish girl
