Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral

"Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral (That's an Irish Lullaby)" is a classic Irish song originally written in 1914 by composer James Royce Shannon (1881–1946) and popularised by Bing Crosby in 1944's Going My Way.

  • Thin Lizzy's song "Vagabond of the Western World" from the album Vagabonds of the Western World features this line repeatedly: Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral.
  • The Dexys Midnight Runners song "Come On Eileen" features in its chorus a nonsense lyric that strongly resembles that of this song.
