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 blue 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 emerald, the shamrock, the Blarney
When you can buy all these wonderful things
Then you can buy Killarney

Such a wonderful landscape you never have seen
A jewel so rare 'twould befit any queen
Pride of old Erin, a joy to behold
Heaven on earth, far more precious than gold

How can you buy all the stars in the skies?
How can you buy two blue 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 emerald, the shamrock and the Blarney
When you can buy all these wonderful things
Then you can buy Killarney
Then you can buy Killarney
