A Oisín is binn liom do bheal
Agus is annsacht don sgeal d’fhaghail uait
Ar chrodhacht Oscar laochrach threun
Bheireadh as gach céim atha buaidh
Lá da rabh Oisín, Fionn, Feargail agus File Mhac Féile
Osgar Fuilteach, Diarmud Donn, Conan Maol agus caogad eile de’n fhéin
‘Sar d-triall ann seilge maidin ceo go Gleann an Smóil
‘Sar ngadhar go daigheargha
Dar an (ámh sin ort a chléirigh agus ní gó (lie)
Budh mhór ar mbród ar luathas ar gcon
Ar saidhe ar thulaigh dúinn ó’s cionn gliune
Budh aoibhinn crainn duilluir a’ fhás

‘As ba bhinne linne a bhfuaim san áill
Leig gach aon dinn de’n fhian

Do leig Fionn dhá ghadhar dheug
‘S budh bhinne na tcuda a ngluin
Ghluaiseas leobhtha an eilit mhaol
Budh ghile taobh na sneachta ar chrann
Bhidh an taobh eile ar dhath an ghuail
A’s budh luathmhara í nó seabhach ar choill
Leig gach aon dinn cú da hiall
