VERSE 01: There's a Colleen in dear old Killarney,/ I would like you to meet her some day,/ She's a rogue of a Colleen for blarney,/ With her laughter your heart she would sway,/ From her head to her toes, She's as fair as a rose,/ And I'm tellin' you all For I don't care who knows,/ I remember when we two were courtin'/ Every Pat said: "I wish she were mine."
CHORUS: She's the wild Irish rose that God gave me/ And he sent her from Heaven above,/ Just to make my heart glad,/ When I'm lonely and sad,/ Just to brighten my life with her love./ Oh thank God for the day that he gave me/ Such a treasure from over the sea,/ There's no gift anywhere that could ever compare/ With the Wild Irish Rose that God gave me.
VERSE 02: Sure I'm sailin' away to ould Erin,/ To the Colleen who waits there for me/ And I long for the ship to be nearin'/ For the day when my own she will be,/ You may seek far and wide for a prettier bride,/ For they call her the pride of the whole countryside,/ When I take her to Father O'Conner/ He will say: "Heaven bless you" I know.
