"A chailín na n-úrla donn, is tú mo ghrá gan dabht,
Is suite deas do chom is do chnámha.
Likewise your features round excel the Lady Browne,
And her equals can't be found insan áit seo.
If I had a thousand pounds, I would lay the money down,
Dá mbeifeá agam i bPort Láirge;
Do thógfaimís duit long, is do rachaimis anonn,
Thar farraige, is níorbh eagal dúinn bheith báite."

"Ní ghéillim-se dod ghlór, mar is mór do dhúil san ól,
Thar farraige ní rachaidh mé go brách leat.
I believe you are for sport, so I beg you let me alone,
Is gur le bladaireacht a mheallann tú na mná leat.
If I bade my friends adieu for to go along with you,
Geallaim duit gur fada bheadh trácht orainn;
I believe I'll stay at home and never go to roam,
Seachain ort! Do radaireacht ní háil liom."

"Is buartha atá mo chroí, le taithneamh mór dod ghnaoi,
Is go mb'aite liom i n-aice thú ná ceol sí,
When I go to bed at night, no sleep can I entice,
But lying on my side in sore grief.
By this and that indeed, and the Bible that you read,
Ní scarfainn leat ar airgead ná ar ór buí,
My treasure, wealth and store, you shall be forever more,
Tar abhaile liom is bhéarfad m'acmhainn duit, a stór groí."
