Lyrics

Chuaigh me fein ar an aonach De Sathairn,
Cheannaigh me asal is capall is tarbh ann,
Thug me abhaile go meidhreach ar maidin iad,
Capall is asal is tarbh gan mhaith!

Da Gceannoimse muc, nior mhor dhom e bheathu,
Da gceannoimse poc, nior mhor dhom e chothu,
Nach Cuma sa tsioc, mas caoire no madra,
Cheannaigh me fein ar an aonach inne!

Chuaigh me fein ar an aonach De Sathairn,
Cheannaigh me asal is capall is tarbh ann,
Thug me abhaile go meidhreach ar maidin iad,
Capall is asal is tarbh gan mhaith!

.en translation

I set off for the market on Saturday morn,
I bought a donkey, a horse and a bull there,
I brought them home gladly,
A horse, a donkey, and a useless bull!

If I had bought a pig, it may have lived,
If I had bought a goat, it might have survived,
It doesnt matter at all, whether it was a sheep or a dog,
I bought it at the market yesterday.

I set off for the market on Saturday morn,
I bought a donkey, a horse and a bull there,
I brought them home gladly,
A horse, a donkey, and a useless bull!
