When the galley was upset
It was dreadful to deplore
The cry of women and children
That day upon the shore
Mrs Scanlon you would pity her
And all the others too
Saying "Now our husbands are gone from us
And alas what will we do."


Seo chugainn é thríd an t-sáile gorm
Péileacán na Gréine
Fear a cóta gorm
Agus snáthad dearg tré'n a léine. (gliomach)

Tháinig éan gan cleite agus luigh sí fá bhun sgeilpe
Tháinig éan gan béal agus sluigh sí an t-éan gan cleite.
(leach oidhre fá scalp agus an ghrían)
