"Brid Og Ni Mhaille" as written by Andrea Jane Corr, Caroline Corr, James Corr, Sharon Corr and Dp,....
Is a Bhríd Ní Mháille
'S tú d'fhág mo chroí cráite
'S chuir tú arraingeacha
An bháis trí cheartlár mo chroí
Tá na mílte fear i ngrá
Le d'éadan ciúin náireach
Is go dtug yú barr breáchtacht'
are Thír Oirghiall más fíor

Níl ní bith is áille
Ná'n ghealach os cionn a' tsáile
Ná bláth bán na n-airne
Bíos ag fás are an droigheann
Ó siúd mar bíos mo ghrá-sa
Níos trilsí le breáchtacht
Béilín meala na háilleachta'
Nach ndearna claon

Is buachaill deas óg mé
'Tá triall chun mo phósta
'S ní buan i bhfad beo mé
Mura bhfaighidh mé mo mhian
A chuisle is a stóirín
Déan réidh agus bí romhamsa
Cionn deireanach den Domhnach
are Bhóithrín Dhroim Sliabh

Is tuirseach 's brónach
A chaithimse an Domhnach
Mo hata I' mo dhorn
'S mé ag osnaíl go trom
'S mé ag amharc are na bóithre
'Mbíonn mo ghrá-sa ag gabhail ann
'S í ag fear eile pósta
Is gan í bheith liom
'S í ag fear pósta
Is gan í bheith liom

Translation
Oh Bríd O'Malley
You have left my heart breaking
You've sent the death pangs
Of sorrow to pierce my heart sore
A hundred men are craving
For your breathtaking beauty
You're the fairest of maidens
In Oriel for sure

No spectacle is fairer
Than moonbeams on the harbour
Or the sweet scented blossoms
Of the sloe on the thorn
But my love shines much brighter
In looks and in stature
That honey-lipped beauty
Who never said wrong

I'm a handsome young fellow
Who is thinking of wedlock
But my life will be shortened
If I don't get my dear
My love and my darling
Prepare now to meet me
On next sunday evening
On the road to Drum Slieve

'Tis sadly and lonely
I pass the time on Sunday
My head bowed in sorrow
My sights heavy with woe
As I gaze upon the byways
That my true love walks over
Now she's wed to another
And left me forlorn

    General CommentIt seems strange that Andrea sings this and not Jim, as this song is a man singing to his love, Bridget O'Malley.
