Starting with the lyrics provided above, I did my best to put together the lyrics as sung by Mary O'Hara. If anyone can fill in the blanks on the two lines that weren't among the lyrics above or has any corrections to the lyrics, please share.

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Nach ioma sin lúibín i gcúilín mo ghrá-sa
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Fear fada fuar follamh an gioll 'tá 'ndán duit
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Grá mo chroí, laogh mo chroí, fear a bhfuil Seán air
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Is ioma fear fada bhíonns lag in a lámha
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Tá mo ghrá fearúil mar siúlann sé Scrábach
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín a' chiotail is lúibín a' tsáspain
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Fear fada fuar follamh an gioll 'tá 'ndán duit
Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir

Lúibín Ó Lúth, bí lúth 's bí láidir
Is ioma fear fada bhíonns lag in a lámha
