Téir abhaile riú   2 comments

Look how the light of the town
the lights of the town are shining now
Tonight I’ll be dancing around
I’m off on the road to Galway now

Look how she’s off on the town
She’s off on a search for sailors though
There’s fine fellas here to be found
She’s never been one to stay at home

Home you’ll go and it’s there you’ll stay
And you’ve work to do in the morning
Give up your dream of going away
Forget your sailors in Galway

Téir abhaile riú, téir abhaile riú
Téir abhaile riú Mháire
Téir abhail gus fan sa bhaile
Mar tá do mhargadh déanta1

Come now and follow me down
Down to the lights of Galway where
There’s fine sailors walking the town
And waiting to meet the ladies there

Watch now he’ll soon be along
He’s finer than any sailor so
Come on now pick up your spoons
He’s waiting to hear you play them so

Here today and she’s gone tomorrow
And next she’s going to Galway
Jiggin’ around and off to town
And won’t be back until morning

Téir abhaile riú, téir abhaile riú
Téir abhaile riú Mháire
Téir abhail gus fan sa bhaile
Mar tá do mhargadh déanta

Off with a spring in my step
The sailors are searching Galway for
A young lady such as myself
For reels and jigs and maybe more

Stay here and never you mind
The lights of the town are blinding you
The sailors they come and they go
But listen to what’s reminding you

Handsome men surrounding you
Dancing a reel around you

Home you’ll go and it’s there you’ll stay
And you’ve work to do in the morning
Give up your dream of going away
Forget your sailors in Galway

Téir abhaile riú, téir abhaile riú
Téir abhaile riú Mháire
Téir abhail gus fan sa bhaile
Mar tá do mhargadh déanta

Listen to the music flow
I’m falling for the flow of home
I’m home to dance till dawning

Téir abhaile riú, téir abhaile riú
Téir abhaile riú Mháire
Téir abhail gus fan sa bhaile
Mar tá do mhargadh déanta

Stay a while and we’ll dance together now
As the light is falling
We’ll reel away till the break of day
And dance together till morning

Téir abhaile riú, téir abhaile riú
Téir abhaile riú Mháire
Téir abhail gus fan sa bhaile
Mar tá do mhargadh déanta

Go on home with you!
Go on home with you!
Go on home with you, Mary!
Go home with you and stay at home
Because your match is made
