Gaol ise gaol i
E o hao-o hao o Hao riri o hu o Ro-ho i o hi o Gaol ise gaol i Gaol air Anna ni' n Nill Mi dualach mi donn Mi mar chuthaig an coill' Mi mar smeraich an craoibh Mi gu biorshuilleach binn Mi torrach mi trom Chan ann le balach mo throm Ach leis an lasgaire dhonn Mac fir Bhaile nan Long Leis an eireadh na suinn Leis an diant' an t-l trom Gaol ise gaol i Gaol air Anna ni' n Nill
Translation into English
My love is she My love is she Love for Ann daughter of Neil My hair curly and brown Like a cuckoo in a wood Like a thrush on a tree Keen my eyes - sweet my voice I am heavy with child By no ordinary lad is my child But by the dark-haired hero Son of the Laid of the Ships With whom warriors would rise Who can drink plenty My love is she Love for Ann daughter of Neil
