Celtic Woman – Nil Se’n La (2016 Version)

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Walking home one stormy night
With my pockets full silver
I did spy a friendly light
And decided I would enter

Well the woman of the house
Made to serve, she wasn’t willing
But she quickly changed her tune
When she saw my silver shilling

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

You are welcome, be our guest
Fill your cup to overflowing
Come right in and take a rest
Sure, where else would you be going

Piper play, the night is young
For the guest we’re entertaining
Let us lead the soul in song
And enjoy the time remaining

It’s not day, stay a while
See the stars, the sky adorning
Bright the moon that’s in the sky
While away the hours ’til morning

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

It’s not day, stay a while
See the stars, the sky adorning
Bright the moon that’s in the sky
While away the hours ’til morning

Oh how soon the hours passed
And I didn’t heed the warning
As they filled the parting glass
With the sun already dawning

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

It’s not day, stay a while
See the stars, the sky adorning
Bright the moon that’s in the sky
While away the hours ’til morning

What a fool I was to stay
And now I’m in trouble plenty
For the landlord wants his pay
And my pockets, they are empty

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas ard atá sa ghealaigh

Níl sé ina lá, níl a ghrá
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go maidin
Níl sé ina lá is ní bheidh go fóill
Solas… ard… atá… sa ghealaigh!
