アイルランドの子守歌 — ペギー葉山

Over in Killarney,
Many years ago,
Me Mother sang a song to me
in tones so sweet and low,
Just a simple little ditty,
In her good old Irish way,
And I’d give the world
if she could sing
That song to me this day.

Too ra loo ra loo ral,
Too ra loo ra li,
Too ra loo ra loo ral,
Hush now don’t you cry!
Too ra loo ra loo ral
Too ra loo ra li
Too ra loo ra loo ral,
That’s an Irish lullaby,
Oft, in dreams, I wander
To that cot again
I feel arms a huggin’ me
As when she held me then.
And I hear voice a hummin;
To me as in days of your,
when she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door

Too ra loo ra loo ral,
Too ra loo ra li,
Too ra loo ra loo ral,
Hush now don’t you cry!
Too ra loo ra loo ral
Too ra loo ra li
Too ra loo ra loo ral,
That’s an Irish lullaby,
Oft, in dreams, I wander
To that cot again
I feel arms a huggin’ me
As when she held me then.
And I hear voice a hummin;
To me as in days of your,
when she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door
