Chuaigh mé 'steach i dteach aréir is d'iarr mé cart ar bhean a' leanna
'Sí dúirt sí liom, ní bhfaighidh tú deoir buail an bóthar is gabh abhaile

I came by a house last night and told the woman I am staying
I said to her, the moon is bright and my fiddle's tuned for playing

Tell me that the night is long, tell me that the moon is glowing
Fill my glass, I'll sing a song and we'll start the music flowing
Never mind the rising light there's no sign of day or dawning
In my heart it's still the night and we'll stay here till the morning

Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh
It's not day nor yet a while I can see the starlight shining
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go fóill solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

choir chants

Fill the glasses one more time and never heed the empty bottle
Turn the water into wine and turn the party up full throttle

Don't go out into the cold where the wind and rain are blowing
For the fire is flaming gold and in here the music's flowing

Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Tell me that the night is long, tell me that the moon is gleaming
Fill my glass, I'll sing a song and we'll keep the music streaming
Until all the songs are sung

Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh
Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh
Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa ghealaigh
Níl sé'n lá, níl a ghrá, Níl sé'n lá, ná baol ar maidin
Níl sé'n lá 's ní bheidh go foil solas ard atá sa
Solas ard atá sa, ard atá sa, ard atá sa ghealaigh
