This young woman wants to look industrious to attract one of the seaweed sellers as they pass.

Lyrics

Iníon mhín ó sin anall na fír shúirí
A mháthairín mhín ó cuir mo rhoithléan go dtí mé

Curfá:
Dúlamán na binna buí dúlamán na Gaelach
Dúlamán na binna buí dúlamán na Gaelach

Rachaimid chun Iúir arsa dúlamán na Gaelach
Ceannóimid na bróga arsa dúlamán na Gaelach. Curfá

Dúlamán na binne buí, dúlamán a' tsleibhe
Dúlamán na farraige, is dúlamán a' Déididh. Curfá

Tá bearéad agus triús ar an dúlamán na Gaelach
Bróga breaca dubha ar an dúlamán na Gaelach. Curfá

Daughter dear, the extracting men are coming over
Mother dear, give me my spinning wheel.

Chorus:
Seaweed from the yellow cliffs, an Irish seaweed seller
Seaweed from the yellow cliffs, an Irish seaweed seller

We will go to Newry said the Irish seaweed seller
We will buy shoes said the Irish seaweed seller. Chorus

Seaweed of the yellow cliff, seaweed of the mountain
Seaweed of the sea, and seaweed of Déididh Chorus

The seaweed seller has a cap and trousers.
The seaweed seller has speckled black shoes. Chorus
