Chorus
Em 
Óró, sé do bheatha ‘bhaile,
D 
Óró, sé do bheatha ‘bhaile,
Em 
Óró, sé do bheatha  
D 
’bhaile
G 
Anois ar  
D 
theacht an  
Em 
tsamhraidh.
 
Em 
’Sé do bheatha, a bhean ba léanmhar,
D 
Do b’ é ár gcreach tú bheith i ngéibheann,
Em 
Do dhúiche bhreá i seilbh  
D 
méirleach, Is tú  
G 
díolta 
 
 
D 
leis na  
Em 
Gallaibh.

Tá Gráinne Mhaol ag teacht thar sáile, Óglaigh armtha léi mar gharda,
Gaeil iad féin is ní Gaill ná Spáinnigh, is cuirfidh siad ruaig ar Ghallaibh.

A bhuí le Rí na bhFeart go bhfeiceam, mura mbeam beo ina dhiaidh ach seachtain,
Gráinne Mhaol agus míle gaiscíoch, ag fógairt fáin ar Ghallaibh.

Chorus
Óró, sé do bheatha ‘bhaile, Óró, sé do bheatha ‘bhaile,
Óró, sé do bheatha ‘bhaile anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh.

A Shéarlais Óig, a mhic Rí Shéamais ‘Sé mo mhór-chreach do thriall as Éirinn
Gan tuinnte bróig’ ort, stoca nó leinidh ach do chascairt leis na Gallaibh.

‘Sé mo léan géar nach bhfeicim mur mbéinn beo ‘na dhiaidh ach seachtain
Séarlas Óg is míle gaiscidheach ag fógairt fáin ar Ghallaibh.

Tá Séarlas Óg ag triall thar sáile béidh siad leisean, Franncaigh is Spáinnigh
Óglaigh armtha leis mar gharda ‘S bainfidh siad rinnce as éiricigh!
