Killarney (Co. Kerry)

How Can You Buy Killarney?

 

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, the Blarney

When you can buy all these wonderful things

Then you can buy Killarney.

 

(Composed by Freddie Grundland, Hamilton Kennedy, Gerald Morrison, Ted Steels; famously sung by Bing Crosby)

Killarney has also been called Heaven’s Reflex – where the angels fold their wings to rest.
