Christmas in Killarney is wonderful to see
Listen to my story and I'll take you back with me
The holly green the ivy green
The prettiest picture you've ever seen
Is Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
It's nice you know to kiss your beau
While cuddling under the mistletoe
And Santa Claus you know of course
Is one of the boys from home
The door is always open
The neighbors pay a call
And Father John before he's gone
Will bless the house and all
How grand it feels to click your heels
And join in the fun of the jigs and reels
I'm handing no blarney
The likes you've never known
Is Christmas in Killarney
With all the folks at home
