Lyrics

Hó ró m'iníon donn bhóidheach
Hó ró m'iníon donn bhóidheach
'S a chailín lách bhóidheach
Ní phósfainn ach thú

A Pheigí dhonn na mbláthshúl
Is trom a thug mé grá duit
Tá d'éadan aoibhinn álainn
De ghrnáth os comhair do shúl

Hó ró m'iníon donn bhóidheach
Hó ró m'iníon donn bhóidheach
'S a chailín lách bhóidheach
Ní phósfainn ach thú

Ní cheilfead ar an saol so
Go bhfuil mé i ngrá go tréan leat;
'S cé d'ímíos uait go scléipeach
Níor thréigeas mo rún

Hó ró m'iníon donn bhóidheach
Hó ró m'iníon donn bhóidheach
'S a chailín lách bhóidheach
Ní phósfainn ach thú

Ach nuair a thiocfadh an samhradh
Rachad féin 'dtí'n gleann úd
Is tabharfadsa, dar Donn, liom
M'ansacht is mo rún
English Translation: My Pretty Brown-Haired lass Chorus Hó ró pretty brown-haired lass Hó ró pretty brown-haired lass My gentle charming pretty girl I'll marry none but you Oh brown-haired Peggy, eyes like flowers My love for you is great and deep Above your eyes your forehead Always beautiful and sweet Chorus I will hide from no man That my love for you is strong Although I went from you carousing I did not cease to love Chorus But when summer is upon us I will go to yonder glen And I swear I'll bring back with me My darling and my love
