A 'nнon mhнn у, sin anall na fir shъirн
A mhбithairin mhнn у, cuir na roithlйan go dtн mй

[Curfб:]
Dъlamбn na binne buн, dъlamбn Gaelach
Dъlamбn na farraige, b'fhearr a bhн in Йirinn

Tб ceann buн уir ar an dъlamбn gaelach
Tб dhб chluais mhaol ar an dъlamбn maorach

Brуga breaca dubha ar an dъlamбn gaelach
Tб bearйad agus triъs ar an dъlamбn maorach

[Curfб 2x]

Gуide a thug na tнre thъ? arsa an dъlamбn gaelach
Ag sъirн le do nнon, arsa an dъlamбn maorach

Rachaimid chun Niъir leis an dъlamбn gaelach
Ceannуimid brуga daora ar an dъlamбn maorach

[Curfб]

і chuir mй scйala chuici, go gceannуinn cнor dн
'Sй'n scйal a chuir sн chugam, go raibh a ceann cнortha

[Curfб]

Cha bhfaigheann tъ mo 'nнon, arsa an dъlamбn gaelach
Bheul, fuadуidh mй liom н, arsa an dъlamбn maorach

Dъlamбn na binne buн, dъlamбn Gaelach

[Curfб]

Dъlamбn na binne buн, dъlamбn Gaelach
Dъlamбn na farraige, b'fhearr a bhн, b'fhearr a bhн
Dъlamбn na binne buн, dъlamбn Gaelach
Dъlamбn na farraige, b'fhearr a bhн, b'fhearr a bhн
B'fhearr a bhн in Йirinn

[English translation:]

Oh gentle daughter, here come the wooing men
Oh gentle mother, put the wheels in motion for me

[Chorus:]
Seaweed from the yellow cliff, Irish seaweed
Seaweed from the ocean, the best in all of Ireland

There is a yellow gold head on the Gaelic seaweed
There are two blunt ears on the stately seaweed
The Irish seaweed has beautiful black shoes
The stately seaweed has a beret and trousers

[Chorus 2x]

"What are you doing here?" says the Irish seaweed
"At courting with your daughter," says the stately seaweed

I would go to Niъir with the Irish seaweed
"I would buy expensive shoes," said the Irish seaweed

[Chorus]

I spent time telling her the story that I would buy a comb for her
The story she told back to me, that she is well-groomed

"Oh where are you taking my daughter?" says the Irish seaweed
"Well, I'd take her with me," says the stately seaweed

Seaweed from the yellow cliff, Irish seaweed

[Chorus]

Seaweed from the yellow cliff, Irish seaweed
Seaweed from the ocean, the best, the best
Seaweed from the yellow cliff, Irish seaweed
Seaweed from the ocean, the best, the best
The best in all of Ireland
