English Translation

 

I hear cattle on the hill with no one there to tend them

And for them I am deeply worried

Between myself and God, to them I take the trail

For they have taken my senses from me

 

Chorus:

She's Moll Dubh of the valley, she's Moll Dubh of spring

She's Moll Dubh, more ruddy than the red rose

And if I had to choose from the young maids of the world

Moll Dubh a' Ghleanna would be my fancy

 

 

Me without a wife I won't be all my life

And Moll Dubh in youth just blooming

Lifeless the song of the bird that sings alone

On a mound by the edge of the moorland

 

The Dark Molly of the glen has my heart in her keeping

She never had reproach or shame

So mannerly and honestly she said to me this morning

"Depart from me and do not come again"

 

There's not a handsome youth from Dublin down to Galway

And around by 'Umhail Uí Mháinnle'

That's not heading for the glen on steeds so sleek and slim

Hoping to win the dark maid's affection
