Cú Chulainn

Tied on a stone, he’s born as hero
Died on his feet, he’s known forever
Born, with a halo of frenzy, you black-browed

Cú Chulainn, Cú Chulainn
Mighty Cú Chulainn, even death you defy
Cú Chulainn
Still he stands where the raven lands
With Emer as his bride.

Small and youthful, (the) son of Lugh and Deichtine
(He) Killed the guard-dog, killed the monster of Culann
Yes, kill the monster of Culann in warp spasm

Cú Chulainn, snared by love
Mighty Cú Chulainn, only love makes you weak
(You) left your wife (and) fell for fand
Mighty Cú Chulainn, return to Emer.
Drink the cup (and) wipe away all the memories
You will ride to the dawn
Ride with Láeg, pass the sea
Bring your loyal wife, bring your ever true bride

Cú Chulainn, Cú Chulainn
Mighty Cú Chulainn, even death you defy
Cú Chulainn
Still he stands where the raven lands
With Emer as his bride.
(The) Legend of Cú Chulainn flies across the land
Like the spear of your fate

Cú Chulainn
Still he stands where the raven lands
With Emer as his bride.
(The) Legend of Cú Chulainn flies across the land
Like the spear of your fate
