VP_001277 Verse 1The Poet sings of coal black eyes and honest eyes of gray, Of hazel eyes and soft brown eyes that hold your heart in sway, But give to me my true love's eyes, sweet orbs of Heaven's own hue, For in their limpid depths I see, sweet Irish eyes of blue. Chorus 1Eyes of blue, tender, true, For you my heart's ever yearning, I love you, Yes, I do, Sweet Irish eyes of blue. Verse 2Within those azure mirrors sweet I see reflected there, A love that's born of joy complete that I alone can share, Their telltale glances softly shy, so modest and so true, Reveal to me love's secret dear, those Irish eyes of blue.
