Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Sleep a little, a little sleep
You to whom I give my love
Son of Duibhne, a Dhiarmaid áin
I will watch over you, uair ní hegail duit a bheg
I will watch over you, a Dhiarmaid áin
Sleep a little, you need not fear the least
The blackbird's voice will betray his coming
His heart is so cold in grief
I will watch over you, uair ní hegail duit a bheg
I will watch over you, a Dhiarmaid áin
Verse 2
Codail began, uair ní hegail duit a bheg
Verse 3
Far away there's a linnet singing
Her fear makes her loathe to sleep
Listen, a stag in the east is calling
His thoughts will not turn to sleep
Parting the two of us is as the parting of children from one home
Parting the two of us is as the parting of body from soul
Verse 4
Codail began, uair ní hegail duit a bheg
