Maidin De Luain a b'fhearr
[call to me always/Monday morning would be best]

Buachaill aniar aniar
Buachaill aniar a b'fhearr
Buachaill aniar aniar aniar
Is cailín ó Shliabh na bPeann
[the boy from the west, and the girl from Peann mountain]

Buachaill maith súiste súiste
Buachaill maith súiste a b'fhearr
Buachaill maith súiste súiste súiste
Is cailín deas tuirne leann
[a good lad with the flail, a good lass at the spinning]

The Speks, at https://www.thespeks.com/nursery-rhymes/dilin-o-deamhas.php give yet another verse

Cuirfead mo rún chun suain,
Cuirfead mo rún ‘na luí,
Cuirfead mo rún chun suain go ciúin,
Le dilín ó deamhas ó dí.

[I would put my darling to rest quietly with a dilín ó deamhas ó dí]
