An Páistín Fionn -- The Fair Haired Child

Tráidisiunta
1. Grá mo chroí mo pháistín fionn
A croí 's a haigne ag gáire liom
A cíocha geala mar bhláth na n-úll
Is a píob' mar eala lá Márta

Curfá

.
1. Love of my heart my fair haired child
His heart and joyousness laughing with me
His white breast is as the flowers of the apple
and his neck is like that of a Swan

Chorus:
"Is tusa mo rún, mo rún, mo rún
Is tusa mo rún is mo ghrá geal
Is tusa mo rún, 's mo chumann go buan
'S é mo chreach gan tú agam ó d' mhaithrín!"

Curfá
You are my dear, my dear, my dear
you are my dear and my dearest one
You are my dear and my enduring companion
Oh what would your mammy do without you!".

Chorus:

2. Cara mo chroí mo pháistín fionn
A dhá gru' ar lasadh mar bhláth na gcrann
Ta míse saor ar mo ph´istín fionn
Ach amhain núair a olaim a sláinte

Curfá

2. Darling of my heart my fair haired child.
His two cheeks glowing like blossoms on a tree.
I am free from my fair little child,
Only when I drink his health.

Chorus:
