It is described as amhrainin do leanbh, a song for children,but otherconnotations are scarcely hidden in these linesAnonn s anall, is thrid an abhainn,A chailleach do mharais me, a chailleach do mharais me,Soir is siar, is frid an sliabh,A chailleach do mharais me, a chailleach do mharais me.Trid an saol is trid an bhfraochA gheobhajnn dem bhaitin ort, a gheobhainn dem bhaitin ort.
