Lyrics

(Source: Sean-Nós Nua)

I've seen the lark so high at noon,
Heard his song up in the blue.
I've heard the songbird pipe his notes,
The thrush and the linnet, too.
But there's none of them can sing so sweet,
My singing bird, as you,
My singing bird, as you.
If I could lure my singing bird
From his own cosy nest,
If I could catch my singing bird,
I would warm him on my breast.
But there's none of them can sing so sweet,
My singing bird, as you,
My singing bird, as you.
