Gaelic lyricsEdit

Taobh cuil an doruis cha bhi grian
Suidh aig bord
Cha bhi biadh 's cha bhi fion
Taobh cuil an doruis cha bhi grian
Cha bhi biadh 's cha bhi fion

Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal 'na shuain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain

Thainig e a Sasainn ann
Thainig e
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm
Thainig e a Sasainn ann
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm

Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal 'na shuain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain

Air lar 'san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
Cha bhi gealach
'S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn
Air lar 'san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
'S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn

Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
An Gaidheal 'sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal 'na shuain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain

English translationEdit

On the other side of the door there will be no sun
Sitting at the table
There will be no food and no wine
On the other side of the door there will be no sun
There will be no food and no wine

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

He came from the south
He came
On a fast horse and with a heavy key
He came from the south
On a fast horse and with a heavy key

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
There will be no moon
Dark will be the night as we sleep
On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
Dark will be the night as we sleep

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
