Chorus:
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Kissed her on the neck
     And then I took her by the hand,
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance.”

I met her on Grafton Street
Right outside of the bar,
She shared a cigarette with me
While her brother played the guitar.
She asked me what does it mean,
The Gaelic ink on your arm?
Said it was one of my friend’s songs,
Do you want to drink on?

She took Jamie as a chaser,
Jack for the fun,
She got Arthur on the table
With Johnny riding as shot gun,
Chatted some more,
One more drink at the bar,
Then put Van on the jukebox,
Got up to dance, you know.

Chorus:
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Kissed her on the neck
     And then I took her by the hand,
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance
     With my pretty little Galway Girl.”
     You’re my pretty little Galway Girl.

You know, she beat me at darts
And then she beat me at pool,
And then she kissed me
Like there was nobody else in the room.
As last orders were called,
Was when she stood on the stool
After dancing to céilí,
Singing to trad tunes.

I never heard Carrickfergus
Ever sung so sweet,
A cappella in the bar
Using her feet for a beat,
Oh, I could have that voice
Playing on repeat for a week,
And in this packed out room swear
She was singing to me, you know.

Chorus:
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Kissed her on the neck
     And then I took her by the hand,
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance.”
     My pretty little Galway Girl,
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl.

And now we’ve outstayed our welcome
And it’s closing time,
I was holding her hand,
Her hand was holding mine.
Our coats both smell
Of smoke, whisky and wine
As we fill up our lungs
With the cold air of the night.

I walked her home,
Then she took me inside,
Finish some Doritos
And another bottle of wine.
I swear I’m going to put you
In a song that I write
About a Galway Girl
And a perfect night.

Chorus:
     She played the fiddle in an Irish band
     But she fell in love with an English man,
     Kissed her on the neck
     And then I took her by the hand,
     Said, “Baby, I just wanna dance.”
     My pretty little Galway Girl,
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl,
     My, my, my, my, my, my, my Galway Girl.
