Lovely voice. The lyrics are posted on that YouTube page - here they are, with a note at the bottom from the poster:


AN LACHA BHACACH.

A chréatúirín leointe is brón liom do dhreach (face)
Im' choinnibh sa phóirse is tú breoite tinn salach,
Do sciathán ba ró-dheas ag silleadh sa lóib (mud) leat,
Is so lapa beag gleoite dar ndóigh ina dhá leath.
Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam...
Pilibachleite (2 months ago)

An t-asal is dócha a thóg tú le speach
Is greadadh go deo air ba mhór é a theaspach
Cuirfead bata fuinseoige ag rince sa tóin air
Is ceangal naoi ló air cois teorann le staic.

Tar anseo im' dhóid chun go dtomhaisead do chnea
Is ná bí chomh glórach ní ceol do bhac-bhac
Idir bhriseadh 'gus leonadh tá ainnise mhór ort
'S is céasadh san domhsa mo lacha bhacach
Didery aighle....


Cad a dhéanfad amáireach is cás liom é mheas
Gan an t-ubh gorm breá mar ba ghnath don bricfeast
Is easnamh don shláinte an bascadh seo 'tá ort
Ach foighne sé 's fearr ar mo lacha bhacach

Tar liomsa láithreach thar táirsigh isteach
Is fan ann go soláthraíod duit cláirín is ceairt
Déanfad cliath daongean d'fháscadh ar bhriseadh do chnáimhín
Is snaidhmigh naoi lá é 's beir sásta go maith.
Didery aighle.....

Stopfad lochán duit go snámhfair amach
Sé an t-íocluibh (medicinal cure) is fearr é do lacha bhacach
Beirse i gcionn spáis bhig ag croitheadh sciathán ann
Is roimh tosach an Mharta ag ardú bhác-bhác!

Didery .....

Because of character limitations I had to post this in sections and it has come out a bit bun-ós-cionn (arseways) so you'll have to re-adjust the verses accordingly!!

My poor wounded craytur, you’re breaking my heart
Lying sore by the door you look terribly bad
How lovely your wing now all flowing with muck,
Your wee paw now so raw, in two halves it is cut.

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam (x2)
How lovely your wing now all flowing with muck,
Your wee paw now so raw, in two halves it is cut.

That donkey I’m sure he gave you a fair whack
So may an iron brand all day burn hard on his back
I’ll tie him up for nine days in the field out the back
And my trusty shelalegh will dance on his crack

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam (x2)
I’ll tie him up for nine days in the field out the back
And my trusty shelalegh will dance on his crack

Come here now my pride
To see how you were hewn
And don’t be so noisy with your whinging tune
With breaking and bawling, your burden is huge
Shur ‘tis torture the dance of the duck with the wound

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam (x2)
With breaking and bawling, your burden is huge
Shur ‘tis torture the dance of the duck with the wound

What’ll happen tomorrow, consider my case
With no nice blue egg
To greet my morning face
For the loss of your eggs in poor health I am struck
But I’ve patience and faith in my little lame duck

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam (x2)
For the loss of your eggs in poor health I am struck
But I’ve patience and faith in my little lame duck

I’ll build you a pond to swim away out
Shur it is the best cure for the lame duck no doubt
Go on with your shivering scared little wings
By the start of next March you will fly high and sing.

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam (x2)
Go on with your shivering scared little wings
By the start of next March you will fly high and sing.

Extra verse:

Come with me right way o’er the old home threshold
Stay there and I’ll wrap you in bandage and board
To give plaster cast growth
To your fractured wee bones
And nine days to just doze in your own happy home
