I understood that this song was to have been sung for either an existing baby or for one that was on the way. However, I don't see a direct reference to either in the gaelic.

Perhaps the "Oh my baby, oh my love...Your father was my only love" was purely an invention of PP&M; but I thought I had seen it elsewhere.
