A maiden fair, she had long dark hair,
And her eyes like the darkest coal;
A taunting smile that would sure beguile,
And melt the hardest soul.
Dancing lightly, sprightly,
She stole his heart with a whirl, that girl;
He'll not forget the night they met,
At a dance called the Dublin Reel.

They walked out to the starry night,
And the crescent moon had a glow;
It felt so right with hands held tight,
As they looked at the town below.
Chancing a kiss, he missed her cheek,
And she pulled away to sway,
To the pull-round sound of the faerie mound,
As they danced to the Dublin Reel.

They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn;
They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn.

The dark of night turned into light,
And he asked, what was her name;
Matters not, was all he got,
As on the grass they lay.
Listenin' to stories, glories,
Seen of another world, this girl;
She must have left while he soundly slept,
Havin' danced to the Dublin Reel.

They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn;
They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn.

Weeks have gone, and life goes on,
Now he's back on American shores;
Every night he relives that sight,
As he longs for it more and more.
Under a spell he fell in love,
With the dancing queen it seems;
His only care is the maiden fair,
At a dance called the Dublin Reel.

They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn;
They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn.
They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn;
They were dancin' all night long,
Dancin' till the break of dawn.
