[chorus] Ailliliu, puilliliu, ailliliu ta an puc ar buile! Ailliliu, puilliliu, ailliliu ta an puc ar buile! Do ritheamar trasna tri ruillogach, Is do ghluais an comhrac ar fud na muinge, Is treascairt do bhfuair se sna turtoga [g.d.] Chuas ina ainneoin ina dhrom le fuinneamh... (chorus) Nior fhag se carraig go raibh scot ann Na gur rith le forsa chun me a mhilleadh, S'Ansan sea do chaith se an leim ba mho. [g.d.] Le fana mhor na Faille Brice... (chorus) Bhi garda mor i mBaile an Roistigh Is bhailigh forsa chun sinn a chlipeadh Do bhuail se rop da adhairc sa toin ann [g.d.] S'da bhriste nua do dhein se giobail... [chorus] I nDaingean Ui Chuis le haghaidh an trathnona Bhi an sagart paroiste amach 'nar gcoinnibh Is e duirt gurbh e an diabhal ba Dhoigh leis [g.d.] A ghaibh an treo ar phocan buile...
