Báidín Fheilimí is Feilimí ann.

Chorus
Báidín bídeach, báidín beosach,
Báidín bóidheach, báidín Fheilimí
Báidín díreach, báidín deontach
Báidín Fheilimí is Feilimí ann.

Báidín Fheilimí d’imigh go Toraí,
Báidín Fheilimí is Feilimí ann.
Báidín Fheilimí d’imigh go Toraí,
Báidín Fheilimí is Feilimí ann.

Báidín Fheilimí briseadh i dToraí,
Báidín Fheilimí is Feilimí ann.
Báidín Fheilimí briseadh i dToraí,
Báidín Fheilimí is Feilimí ann.

Chorus

Báidín Fheilimí briseadh i dToraí,
Iasc ar bord agus Feilimí ann.
Báidín Fheilimí briseadh i dToraí,
Iasc ar bord agus Feilimí ann.

Chorus

Feilimi's Little Boat

Feilimi's little boat went to Gola,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it,
Feilimi's little boat went to Gola,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it.

Chorus
A tiny little boat, a lively little boat,
A buoyant little boat, Feilimi's little boat,
A straight little boat, a willing little boat,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it.

Feilimi's little boat went to Tory,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it,
Feilimi's little boat went to Tory,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it.

Chorus

Feilimi's little boat crashed on Tory,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it,
Feilimi's little boat crashed on Tory,
Feilimi's little boat and Feilimi in it.

Chorus

Feidhlim's little boat crashed on Tory,
Fish on board and Feidhlim in it,
Feidhlim's little boat crashed on Tory,
Fish on board and Feidhlim in it.
