lyrics

The holly green, the ivy green,
the prettiest picture you've ever seen
It's 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 b'ys 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 you no blarney,
The likes you've never known
It's Christmas in Killarney,
With all of the folks at home.

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
It's 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 b'ys 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 you no blarney,
The likes you've never known
It's Christmas in Killarney,
With all of the folks at home.
