I'M LIVING THE LIFE O' REILLY
(Claude Reese; Claude Garreau)
As recorded by Eileen and Peter McNulty and Their Orchestra (Decca 2963 A), 1939.

Life is great; nothing can go wrong.
All I do is smile and sing a song.
Haven't got a worry, not a single care.
I'm in heaven, walking on air.

I'm livin' the life o' Reilly; I'm a-wearin' of the green.
I found my true love, an Irish colleen.
I'm livin' the life o' Reilly; ev'rything is going fine.
Last night she kissed me and said she'd be mine.

Soon we'll be buildin' a cottage for two.
We'll have our troubles, but little ones, it's true.
I'm tellin' the world I'm happy, just as happy as can be,
Now that I'm livin' the life o' Reilly.

I'm livin' the life o' Reilly 'cause it's love that's in my heart.
I know for certain that we'll never part.
I'm livin' the life o' Reilly doing things I've always planned,
All with my darlin', and gee, but it's grand.

Ireland is calling; it's heaven, they say.
That's where we're goin' upon our wedding day.
I'm writing the folks a letter that they'll soon have company,
Now that we're livin' the life o' Reilly.
