Trousers without waistband was Pháidín O'Rafferty,
High yellow hat was Pháidín O'Rafferty,
Narrow feet high was Pháidín O'Rafferty,
The escaped my love-in with Paddy O'Rafferty.
Faidhfilileá, faidhfilil aidió,
Most faidhfilil Faidhfilileá aidió.
Trousers that knee was Pháidín O'Rafferty,
Hat without base was Pháidín O'Rafferty,
Yellow feet high was Pháidín O'Rafferty,
But escaped my love-in with Paddy O'Rafferty.
Rise up, O Raifeartaigh to Fadden,
Sadly I can not, is weak ioscadaí me,
I am in age but not all three feet of me,
See therefore had the seduction of women in me!
Girl big house that I will never accept,
She is angry nuallghothach hardness,
Has beat all the cat on her mhada,
Out at midnight she has the watch word.
Girl from the mountain yet to be me,
She Blífidh require the cow and the horse for me,
It will the cake, my butter and milk for me,
Is never ever elope with Paddy O'Rafferty.
