Chorus:

Oh, the days of the Kerry dancing

Oh, the ring of the piper’s tune

Oh, for one of those hours of gladness

Gone, alas, like our youth, too soon!

When the boys began to gather

In the glen of the summer night

And the Kerry piper’s tuning

Filled us all with a wild delight!

Oh, to think of it

Oh, to dream of it

Fills my heart with tears!

Chorus:

Oh, the days of the Kerry dancing

Oh, the ring of the piper’s tune

Oh, for one of those hours of gladness

Gone, alas, like our youth, too soon!

Was there ever a sweeter Colleen

In the dance than Eily More

Or a prouder lad than Thady

As he boldly took the floor

Lads and lasses to your places

Up the middle and down again

And the merry hearts of laughter

Ringing through the happy glen!

Oh, to think of it

Oh, to dream of it

Fills my heart with tears!

Chorus:

Oh, the days of the Kerry dancing

Oh, the ring of the piper’s tune

Oh, for one of those hours of gladness

Gone, alas, like our youth, too soon!

 Laughing voices of old companions

Stealing out of the past once more

And the sound of the dear old music

Soft and sweet as in days of yore

When the boys began to gather

In the glen of the summer night

And the Kerry piper’s tuning

Filled us all with a wild delight!

Oh, to think of it

Oh, to dream of it

Fills my heart with tears!

Chorus:

Oh, the days of the Kerry dancing

Oh, the ring of the piper’s tune

Oh, for one of those hours of gladness

Gone, alas, like our youth, too soon!
