Thig, a Bhreannain, o'n a chuan, Thig, a Thorrainn, buadh nam fear, Thig, a Mhicheil, mhil a nuas 'S dilinn domh-sa bua mo ghean. Ho m' aghan, ho m' agh gaoil, Ho m' aghan, ho m' agh gaoil, M' aghan gradhach, bo gach airidh, Sgath an Ard Righ gabh ri d' laogh.
Thig, a Chaluim chaoimh, o'n chro, Thig, a Bhride mhor nam buar, Thig, a Mhoire mhin, o'n neol, 'S dilinn domh-sa bo mo luaidh. Ho m' aghan, ho m' agh gaoil.
Thig am fearan o'n a choill, Thig an traill a druim nan stuagh, Thig an sionn cha 'n ann am foill, A chur aoibh air bo nam buadh. Ho m' aghan, ho m' agh gaoil.

MILKING CROON

Come, Brendan, from the ocean, Come, Ternan, most potent of men, Come, Michael valiant, down And propitiate to me the cow of my joy. Ho my heifer, ho heifer of my love, Ho my heifer, ho heifer of my love. My beloved heifer, choice cow of every shieling, For the sake of the High King take to thy calf.
Come, beloved Colum of the fold, Come, great Bride of the flocks, Come, fair Mary from the cloud, And propitiate to me the cow of my love. Ho my heifer, ho heifer of my love.
The stock-dove will come from the wood, The tusk will come from the wave, The fox will come but not with wiles, To hail my cow of virtues. Ho my heifer, ho heifer of my love.
