The Horslips – An Bratach Ban lyrics

‘Mhic Iarla na bratach bána,
‘Mhic Iarla na bratach bána,
‘Mhic Iarla na bratach bána,
Chona má­ to long thar sáile...

Chona má­ to long thar sáile,
Chona má­ to long thar sáile,
Chona má­ to long thar sáile,
Stiáir óir is dhá¡ sheol airgid..

Stiáir óir is dhá¡ sheol airgid,
Stiáir óir is dhá¡ sheol airgid,
Stiáir óir is dhá¡ sheol airgid,
Is cupla chon de óare na Spáinne...

Cupla chon de óare na Spáinne,
Cupla chon de óare na Spáinne,
Cupla chon de óare na Spáinne,
Chona má­ to long thar sáile...

English translation:

The son of the earl of the white banners
The son of the earl of the white banners
The son of the earl of the white banners
I saw your longship on the sea.

I saw your longship on the sea,
I saw your longship on the sea,
I saw your longship on the sea,
There was a helm of gold on her, and two silver masts.

There was a helm of gold on her, and two silver masts,
There was a helm of gold on her, and two silver masts,
There was a helm of gold on her, and two silver masts,
And sails of cloth-of gold from far Spain...

There were sails of cloth-of gold from far Spain,
Sails of cloth-of gold from far Spain,
Sails of cloth-of gold from far Spain,
I saw your longship on the sea
