Original text and translations
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and roses fallen
'Tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
O Danny boy, O Danny boy, I love you so.
And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I’m lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.
And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warmer, sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
O Danny boy, O Danny boy, come back to me.
