Just near that old place, Killarney,
In an old cabin so neat,
Dwells a bright star Kitty Carney,
My Irish colleen so sweet.
Tho' it's long ages since we parted,
Well I remember the scene;
She wept on my breast, broken-hearted,
My dear little Irish colleen.

Chorus: Kitty Carney wait for me,
For I'm coming back to you;
I will love you all my life,
As long as your heart is true.
I will soon be home again,
And when I cross the sea,
I'll make you my own little wife,
If you'll only wait for me.

I've saved up my weekly wages,
Quite a large sum I possess,
But still in my poor heart stil rages,
A feeling you all can guess.
Oft times at night in my dreaming,
Kitty's sweet face I can see,
And her blue eyes brightly beaming,
Betraying her sweet love for me.
