When Irish Eyes are Smiling

A lovely "Irish folksong" written in the United States in 1912 for "The Isle O' Dreams". The lyrics are by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr. and the music by Enerst Ball. And who wouldn't fall for that Irish blarney: "When Irish hearts are singing all the world seems bright and gay"?!
