A shéimh-chorp mar eala le h-aiteas ag snámh ar linn,
‘S a béal tanaidhe meala do chealg thar bárr mo chroidhe

‘Sé mo léan gan mé sealad is an ainnir is áile gnaoi
I nGaortha cois Fleasga taobh leasa nó áimh le coill,
Gan buaidheachas dá maireann bheith agam-sa a stáid-bhéan-chaoin
Ar saoghaltach na Sacsan ní sgarfainn le grádh mo chroidhe.
N.B.
A deir Dómhnall gur airigh sé gurbh’é Finghín Ua Scannaill a chúm an t-amhrán so.

The pup came home from Claedheach
To-day and I am glad of it

Is a géaga do bhascadar
