Suil A Ruin
I wish I were on yonder hill
'Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
'Til every tear would turn a mill
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán

Chorus:
Siúil, siúil, siúil a rúin (Go, go, go, my love)
Siúil go sochair agus siúil go ciúin (Go quietly and go peacefully)
Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom (Go to the door and fly with me)
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín slán (And safe for aye may my darling be)

I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my only spinning wheel
And buy my love a sword of steel
Is go dté tú mo mhúirnín 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 tú mo mhúirnín slán

(Chorus twice)
