Is thiar cois abhainn gan bhréag gan dabht
Ta an ainnir chiúin tais mhánla
Is gur ghile a cam ná an eala ar an dtonn
Ó bhaitheas go bonn a bróige
'Sí an stáidbhean í a chráigh mo chroí
Is d'fhág sí i m'intinn brónach
Is leigheas le fáil níl agam go brách
Ó dhiúltaigh mo ghrá gheal domsa

Ó b'fhearr liom fhéin ná Éire mhóir
Ná saibhres Rí na Spáinne
Go mbéinnse 'gus tusa i lúb na finne
I gcoilltibh i bhfad ón ár gcáirde
Ó mise 'gus tusa bheith pósta a ghrá
Le haontoil athar is máthair
A mhaighdean óig is milse póg
Tú grian na Carraige Báine

'S a stuaire an chinn cailce, más dual dom go mbeir agam
Beidh cóir ort a thaithneodh led' cháirde
Idir shíoda 'gus hata ó bhonn go bathas
'S gach ní sa chathair dá bhfeabhas
Beidh do bhólacht á gcasadh gach neoin chun baile
Is ceol binn ag beacha ar bhánta
Beidh ól ar do ghlacadh is cóiste id' tharraingt
Go bruach na Carraige Báine

    General CommentTranslation:

    And west by the river, without a doubt or lie
    There is a quiet gentle beauty
    And her waist is a bright as any swan on the wave
    From the crown of her head to the soles of her feet
    She is the woman that tormented my heart
    And left me heartbroken
    There is nothing that will cure me
    Since my true love rejected me

    I would prefer, than all of Ireland
    Or the wealth of the king of Spain
    That you and I could be together in a quiet spot
    In a wood far from our friends
    Oh you and I to be married, my love
    With the permission of father and mother
    Oh young maiden of the sweet kisses
    You're the sun of the White Rocks

    Oh beauty of the white hair, if you would be mine
    You would have everything your friends would like
    From silk to hats, from head to toe
    And the best of everything in the city
    Your cows would be driven every noon to the town
    And the bees in the meadow would sing sweetly for you
    You would have your fill of drink and have coaches to take you
    All around the edge of the White Rocks
