TranslationThis song has been translated into English.
I wish I was on yonder hill
'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
Until every tear would turn a mill
Is go dté tu, mo mhuirnín slán

CHORUS
Siúil, siúil, siúil a rúin
Siúil go socar agus siúil go ciúin
Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dté tu, mo mhuirnín slán

I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my only spinning wheel
To buy my love a sword of steel
Is go dté tu, mo mhuirnín slán

CHORUS

I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And 'round the world I'll beg my bread
Until my parents shall wish me dead
Is go dté tu, mo mhuirnín slán

CHORUS

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain
I wish I had my heart again
And vainly think I'd not complain
Is go dté tu, mo mhuirnín slán

CHORUS

But now my love has gone to France
To try his fortune to advance
If he e'er come back, 'tis but a chance
Is go dté tu, mo mhuirnín slán

CHORUS
