Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Circle to the left
When Irish eyes are smiling
All the world is bright and gay

Why now the men star right, go once around tonight
Allemande left and weave I say
When Irish eyes are laughing
Swing with your girl and promenade her
(And when) Irish eyes are smiling
They steal your heart away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around the ring now
You make a right hand star and turn it there
Heads star left inside the ring, to the same two again
Swing thru and now
Boys trade, turn thru, left allemande
Come on back one and promenade
(And when) Irish eyes are smiling
They steal your heart away

When Irish Eyes Are Smilin'
 
 

There's a tear in your eye and I'm wondering why
For it never should be there at all
With such power in your smile, sure a stone you'd beguile
So there's never a teardrop should fall
When your sweet lilting laughter's like some fairy song
And your eyes twinkle bright as can be
You should laugh all the while, and all other times smile
And now smile a smile for me

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

For your smile is a part of the love in your heart
And it makes even sunshine more bright
Like the linnet's sweet song, crooning all the day long
Comes your laughter so tender and light
For the spring-time of life is the sweetest of all
There is ne'er a real care or regret
And while spring-time is ours, throughout all of youth's hours
Let us smile each chance we get

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

Composed by Ernest R. Ball.
Lyrics by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff Jr..
