Is it the laughing eye, Eileen Aroon
Is it the timid sigh, Eileen Aroon
Is it the tender tone, soft as the string’d harp’s moan
Oh, it is truth alone, Eileen Aroon

When like the rising day, Eileen Aroon
Love sends his early ray, Eileen Aroon
What makes his dawning glow, changeless through joy or woe
Only the constant know, Eileen Aroon

I knew a valley fair, Eileen Aroon
I knew a cottage there, Eileen Aroon
Far in that valley’s shade, I knew a gentle maid
Flower of hazel glade, Eileen Aroon
