Seoithín seo
(Shoheen sho)

Irish lullaby

Seoithín seo thó, aililiu lo
Seoithín seo thó, ‘s tu mo leanbh


Ar mhullach an tSí tá síoga geala
Fá chaoin ré an earraigh ag imirt a spóirt
Is seo iad aniar chun glaoigh ar mo leanbh
Le mian é tharraingt isteach sa Lios Mór
Shoheen sho ho, aililiu lo
Shoheen sho ho, you are my child


At the top of the hill there are bright fairies
Playing under the soft moonlight
Here they come now to call to my child
Wishing to lure him into the fairy ring
