Lyrics: English Translation:
Aréir is mé téarnamh ar neoin Last night as I strolled abroad
Ar ar dtaobh eile 'en teóra seo thiós On the other side of this __
Do thaobhnaigh an spéirbhean im' chomhair A beautiful woman approached me
D'fhág taomanac breoite lag tinn She left me weak and ill
Le haon ghean dá méin is dá cló With one __ her disposition and her appearance
Dá bréithre 's dá beol tanaí binn Her __ and her thin sweet mouth
Do léimeas fá dhéin dul 'na treo ___
Is ar Éirinn ní neosfainn cé hí But for Ireland I'd not tell her name
Last night in strange fields as I roved
Such a vision I passed on my way
A young woman so fair to behold
That in seconds my heart was astray
Oh she reached out a welcoming hand
But I knew that it never could be
And before I could kiss her sweet lips
She had vanished forever from me
