Chorus Oh, gradh mo chroi mo cruiscín Slainte geal Mauver-neen, Gradh mo chroi mo cruiscín lán, lán, lán, Oh gradh mo chroide mo cruiscín lán. Immortal and divine, grey haired Bachus, god of wine Create me by adoption, your own son In hopes that you'll comply, that my glass shall ne'er run dry Nor me darlin' little cruiscín lán, lán, lán, Nor me darlin' little cruiscín lán. Chorus... And when grim death appears In a few but happy years He'll whisper,"Won't you come along with me? "I'll say, "Begone ye knave, for King Bacchus gave me leave to fill another cruiscín lán, lán, lán, to fill another cruiscín lán. Chorus... So Lets lift our glasses high That our lips shall ne'er run dry Though the lark declares the early morning dawn. And since we can't remain, Until we meet again To have another cruiscín lán, lán, lán, To have another cruiscín lán.

Here is the song Cúnla, (Coonla) for the first time 'mastered' in a studio by this artist. Sung by Mike O'Laughlin at the Irish Roots Cafe with sean nós styling, in both Irish and English. The story is explained in English at the beginning of this recording. After some flirtatious encounters, Coonla decides to visit his intended at home one night.... the sounds of his approach, arrival, and actions are noted in this song of the unofficial 'Irish Spirit of the Night'. Cúnla has been held responsible for many a thing over the years it seems...

A sean nós styled song, sung here by Mike O'Laughlin, with memories of the famine, eviction, loss of land and property. Recalling perhaps, the mythical cow, that gave an endless supply of milk, sustaining the Irish - now lost..... The lyrics used here are given below. (This version is largely in English, save for the title). Drimmin Donn Dilis (Dear Brown Cow): Oh Drimmin Donn Dilis, The landlord has come, Like a foul blast of death has he swept o'er our home; He has withered the rooftree - beneath the cold sky, Poor, houseless,/ and homeless,/ to-night we must lie. My heart it is cold as the white winter's snow; My brain is on fire, and my blood's in a glow. Oh Drimin Donn Dilis, 'tis hard to forgive When a robber / denies /us the right we should live. I bid you, old comrade, one long last farewell; For the gaunt hand of famine, has clutched us, all too well; It has severed the master, and you, my brown cow, With a blight on his life/ and a brand on your brow.
