BANKS OF CARRAIGE BÁNA (Gaedilg is Beárla)

(I)
Ar mhaidin inde agus é go moch
Tamall amach sa bFoghmhar
Cé chifinn chugham acht grádh mo chleíbh
Is bhí sí ann 'na comhrú
Bhí sí ann deas dearg agus geall
Bhí dhá gruaidh mar na Roses
Is d'faisg mé í go d'tluth le'm chroidhe
Sé dubhairt sí bí i-d' chomhnuidhe
(II)
As I roved out to view the plains
Of a Summer's morning early
A pretty fair maid I chanced to spy
And her flowers they grew most mately
Her cherry cheeks and ruby lips
And her eyes would tickle the daisies.
