[Chorus:]
The holly green, the ivy green
The prettiest picture you've ever seen 
Is 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 boys 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
Our Hearts are light, our spirits bright
We'll celebrate our joy tonight
It's Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home

[Chorus]

We'll decorate the Christmas tree 
While all the family's here
Around a roaring fire
We will raise a cup of cheer
There's gifts to bring and songs to sing
And laughs to make the rafters ring
It's Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
 
[Chorus]

Hey!

[Chorus]

We'll take the Horse and Sleigh 
All across the fields of snow
Listening to the jingle bells
And everywhere we go
How grand it feels to click your heels
And dance away to the jigs and reels
It's Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
 
[Chorus]

The holly green, the ivy green
The prettiest picture you've ever seen 
I'm handing you no blarney 
No matter where you roam
It's Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home
