From the musical The Heart of Paddy Whack (1914), with music by Ernest R. Ball.


Shure, a little bit of heaven fell from out the sky, one day,
And nestled on the ocean in a spot so far away,
And when the angels found it,
Shure it looked so sweet and fair,
They said, "Suppose we leave it, for it looks so peaceful there."
So they sprinkled it with star dust, just to make the shamrocks grow,
'Tis the only place you'll find them, no matter where you go.
Then they dotted it with silver to make its lakes so grand,
And when they had it finished, shure they called it Ireland.
