[Rough Phonetic]

[Corfá]
Dúlamán na binne buí, Dúlamán Gaelach
Dúlamán na farraige, ’s é b’fhearr a bhí in Éirinn.

A’níon mhín ó, sin anall na fir shúirí
A mháithair mhín ó, cuir na roithléan go dtí mé.

[Corfá]

Tá cosa dubha dúbailte ar an Dúlamán Gaelach
Tá dhá chluais mhaol ar an Dúlamán Gaelach.

[Corfá]

Rachaimid go doire leis an Dúlamán Gaelach,
Is ceannóimid bróga daora ar an Dúlamán Gaelach.

[Corfá]

Bróga breaca dubha ar an Dúlamán Gaelach
Tá bearéad agus triús ar an Dúlamán Gaelach.

[Corfá]

Ar bhfaca tú mo ghrá arsa an Dúlamán Gaelach
Ni dheachaigh sí liom í, d’fhiafrigh an fear Shúirí.

[Corfá]

Ó sin deireadh le mo scéal arsa an Dúlamán Gaelach
’S cuir fáilte do mo ghádhsa arsa an Dúlamán Maorach.

[Corfá x 2]
