Siuil a ruin

I wish I was on yonder hill
Tis there I'd sit and cry my fill
And till every tear would turn a mill
Is go dtí tú mo mhuirnín slán.

(Chorus)
Siúil, siúil, siúil a rúin
Siúil go sochair agus siúil go ciúin
Siúil go doras agus éalaigh liom
Is go dtí tú mo mhuirnín slán

I'll sell my rock, I'll sell my reel
I'll sell my only spinning wheel
To buy my love a sword of steel
Is go dtí tú mo mhuirnín slán

(Chorus)

I'll dye my petticoats, I'll dye them red
And around the world I'd beg my bread
Until my parents shall wish me dead.
Is go dtí tú mo mhuirnín slán

(Chorus)

But now my love has gone to France
To try his fortune to advance
If he e'er comes back it is but a chance
Is go dtí tú mo mhuirnín slán

(Chorus)

English translation chorus:

Go, go, go Love
Go smoothly and quietly
Go to the door and escape with me
And may you go safe my darling
