Clannad – Caide Sin Do'n Te Sin lyrics

[From Gerard Manning's List of Clannad Lyrics]
Chuaigh me chun aonaigh is dhiol me mo bho
Ar chuig phunta airgid is ar ghini bhui oir
Ma olaim an t-airgead is ma bhronnaim an t-or
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do
Ma olaim an t-airgead is ma bhronnaim an t-or
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do

Ma theim na choille chraobhaigh cruinniu smeara no cno
A bhaint ullai de gheaga no a bhuachailleacht bo
Ma shinim seal uaire faoi chrann a deanamh so
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do
Ma shinim seal uaire faoi chrann a dheanamn so
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do

Ma theimse chuig airneal is rince is sport
Chuig aonach is rasai's gach cruinniu den tsort
Ma chim daoine sugach is ma bhim sugach leo
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do
Ma chim daoine sugach is ma bhim sugach leo
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do

Deir daoine go bhfuil me gan rath's gan doigh
Gan earra gan eadach gan bolacht na stor
Ma ta mise sasta mo chonai I gcro
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do
Ma ta mise sasta mo chonai I gcro
O caide sin do'n te sin nach mbaineann sin do

Translation
[From Gerard Manning's List of Clannad Lyrics]
I went to the fair and sold my cow
For five pounds of silver and a yellow guinea of gold
If I drink the silver and if I give away the gold
O what is that to anyone else.
If I drink the silver and if I give away the gold
O what is that to anyone else.

If I go to the leafy woods gathering berries or chestnuts,
Plucking apples from branches or herding cows,
If I stretch out for a while beneath a tree relaxing,
O what is that to anyone else.
If I stretch out for a while beneath a tree relaxing,
O what is that to anyone else.

If I go for a night-visit and for dancing and sport,
To fairs and races and every gathering of that sort,
If I see happy people and if I'm happy with them,
O what is that to anyone else.
If I see happy people and if I'm happy with them,
O what is that to anyone else.

People say I'm without riches no doubt,
Without goods or clothes or cattle or stock,
If I a happy living in a hovel,
O what is that to anyone else.
If I a happy living in a hovel,
O what is that to anyone else.
