Jelena Perišić, Nead na Lachan Nest of ducks in the mote

Nead na lachan sa mhúta
Nead na lachan sa mhúta
Nead na lachan sa mhúta
‘s cuirfidh mé amach ar an gcuan thú

Curfá:
Haigh dí didil dí didil dí
Haigh dí dí dil dero
Haigh didil didil dí didil dí dí
Dí didil dí dero

Béarfaidh mé currach is criú dhuit
Béarfaidh mé currach is criú dhuit
Béarfaidh mé currach is criú dhuit
‘s cuirfidh mé amach ar an gcuan thú

Ceannóidh mé slat agus d’rú dhuit
Ceannóidh mé slat agus d’rú dhuit
Ceannóidh mé slat agus d’rú dhuit
‘s cuirfidh mé amach ar an gcuan thú

from Traditional Irish Gaelic Children’s Songs (Amhráin Gaelach Tradisiúnta do Pháistí), released June 21, 2006
