Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Yellow Cow, The

Is Trua gan Peata 'n Mhaoir agam
Peata Beag is a Mháthair
Mother and Child Reel, The
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Is trua gan peata 'n mhaoir agam (3 times)
'S na caoire beaga bána.
Is ó goirim, goirim thú,
Is grá mo chroí gan cheilg thú,
Is ó goirim, goirim thú,
Is tú peata beag do mháthar.
I wish I had a bainbhín,
a bainbhín, a bainbhín,
I wish I had a bainbhín,
that would drink the pratie water.
