A Little Bit of Heaven Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a dear old land of leprechauns
And wondrous wishing wells
And nowhere else on God's green Earth
There be such lakes and dells
Verse 2
No wonder that the angels love
That shamrock covered shore
It draws my heart home again
And I love it more and more
Verse 3
Have you ever heard the story of
How Ireland got its name
Well, I'll tell you so you'll understand
From whence old Ireland came
Verse 4
No wonder that I love
That dear old land across the sea
For here's the way my dear old Father
Told the tale to me
Verse 5
Sure, a little bit of heaven fell
From out the sky one day
And it nestled on the ocean
In a spot so far away
Verse 6
And when the angels found it
Sure, it looked so sweet and fair
They said, "Suppose we leave it
For it looks so peaceful there"
Verse 7
So they sprinkled it with stardust
Just to make the shamrocks grow
'Tis the only place you'll find them
No matter where you go
Verse 8
Then they dotted it with silver
To make its lakes so grand
And when they had it finished
Sure, they called it Ireland!
