VP_012285 Verse 1From that Isle o'er the sea floating over to me comes the music of laughter and dance And with hearts that are gay they turn night in to day in that wonderful land of romance. Chorus 1Ev'ry tear is a smile in an Irishman's heart for his heart is as big as can be And the smile on his face is a trait of the race a happy go lucky is he And of sorrow or care he is never aware and his wit wins you right from the start Sure he's loved all the while for each tear is a smile in every Irish mans heart. Verse 2Thro' all sorrow and pain he will smile just the same and he loves with a love that's divine He brings music and mirth all over the earth and his laugh is like sparkling wine.
