I'm a herdsman's daughter sure enough
Who once lived down by the banks of the Laune
I had a cabin there a window in the gable
While I heated the milk I called in the calves

Chorus:
Aililiú the calves, the pretty calves
Aililiú the calves, I loved them the best
Aililiú the calves, the fine pretty calves
Dancing in the meadow on a clear summer's morning

Get me a can and get me a ladle
Get me a vessel to take all the cream
The magic music of the world always around me
But sweeter sounding still the cattle lowing to the parlor

(Chorus)

Let us go to the fair and buy us some calves
Put them to grass out above in the valleys
They'll eat all the grass and the tufts of the strange gorse
And come home for the milk at the start of the summer

(Chorus 2x)
