Óró Mo Bháidín

An sweet Irish lullaby about a boat today – this time from the ladies of Lumiere. This is found on their self-titled CD Lumiere.

Óró mo bháidín

Curfa
Óró mo bháidín a’ snámh ar an gcuan
Óró mo bháidín
Óró mo churraichín ó
Óró mo bháidín

Crochfaidh mé seólta ‘gus bogfaidh mé siar
Óró mo bháidín
‘S go hoíche Fhéile Eoin ní thicofaidh mé aniar
Óró mo bháidín

Curfa

‘S nach breá í mo bháidín a’ snámh ar an gcuan
Óró mo bháidín
‘S na maidí á dtarraingt go láidir ‘s go buan
Óró mo bháidín

Curfa

‘S nach éachtach a’ léimneach thar thonnta árd’
Óró mo bháidín
‘S nach eadtrom í iompar aníos thar an trá
Óró mo bháidín

Curfa

Óró mo bháidín a’ snamh ar an gcuan
Óró mo bháidín
Faighimís na maidí is téimís chun siúil
Óró mo bháidín

Curfa

Translation

Oro my little boat swimming on the harbour
Oro my little boat
Oro my little currach
Oro my little boat

I’ll hoist the sail and go to the west
Oro my little boat
And until St John’s Eve I’ll not return
Oro my little boat

Chorus

Isn’t she a fine wee boat
Oro my little boat
With her oars pulling strong and steady
Oro my little boat

Chorus

Does she not ride the waves with grace
Oro my little boat
And how lightly she’s carried in on the tide
Oro my little boat

Chorus

Oro my little boat swimming on the harbour
Oro my little boat
Let us raise the oars and set off
Oro my little boat

Chorus
