1. An bhfaca tú mo Shéamuisín?
Mo stóirín óg, mo bhuachaillín.
An bhfaca tú mo Shéamuisín?
Is é ‘gabháil síos an bóthar.

Níl bróg ar bith ar a dhá choisín.
Ar a dhá choisín, ar a dhá choisín.
Níl bróg ar bith ar a dhá choisín.
Níl caipín air ná clóca.

2. Ag dul ar scoil tá Séamuisín
Mo stóirín óg, mo bhuachaillín
Ag dul ar scoil tá Séamuisín
‘S a leabharín buí sa phóca.

Ar a dhroim tá máilín beag
Tá máilín beag, tá máilín beag
Ar a dhroim tá máilín beag
'S a lóinsín ann is dócha.

3. Do rugadh é i Móin a Lín
Ag bun an chnoic i nead éinín
Do rugadh é i Móin a Lín
In aice le Bun Dóite.

Ó grá mo chroí mo Shéamuisín
Mo stóirín óg, mo bhuachaillín.
Ó grá mo chroí mo Shéamuisín
Ar maidin is tráthnóna.

Have you seen my little Jimmy?
My little love, my little boy.
Have you seen my little Jimmy?
As he was going down the road.

No shoes at all on his little feet.
On his little feet, on his little feet.
No shoes at all on his little feet.
Nor a little hat or coat.

Going to school is little Jimmy
My little love, my little boy,
Going to school is little Jimmy
A little yellow book in his pocket.

On his back is a little bag
A little bag, a little bag
On his back is a little bag
And his little lunch inside it.

He was born in Móin a Lín
At the bottom of the hill in a little bird nest
He was born in Móin a Lín
Near to Bun Dóite.

The love of my heart is my little Jimmy
My little love, my little boy.
The love of my heart is my little Jimmy
From morning till night.

I was not able to find a midi for this poem but the background music suits it perfectly.
