I'd like to say that you gave me the best days of your life
So have one on me
I've been away but I think of you much more these days
Thanks for the memories
Here comes the moon again
It makes me think of when I last saw
My irish cousin

He looked so happy then
I can't believe that he's gone at all
My irish cousin

He said "surprise!"
And I could not believe my eyes
When I saw love
Yes I saw love

Hey, it's good to hear your voice
Even if I'm number 32 in your little black book of things to do
Hey, would you like to go out today
Maybe see a show
I don't know about you
So little time, so many things to do
I used to have these conversations all of the time
With my irish cousin

Well, here comes the moon again
I can't believe that's when I last saw
My irish cousin

We had a row in every bar in dublin
But we loved it 'cause we were equal
Two very lonely people
Oh, is it too late to tell him that I miss him?
I can't remember kissing him goodbye
My irish cousin

I let him down so many times but he never kicked me out
He let me cry, he'd let me shout
He said "that's what it's all about"
Here comes the moon again
It makes me think of when I last saw
My irish cousin

He made me laugh beyond the call of duty and I loved him
I'm so glad I told him
But maybe that's what did him in
I wouldn't put it past him
My irish cousin

He said "surprise!"
And I could not believe my eyes
When I saw love
Yes I saw love
In my irish cousin
