Bronntanais na Síóga
© Caera 2006

Tá na síóga a’ rince timpeall do chliabhán chun coimirce a’ thabhairt dhuit.
Tá na síóga a’ rince timpeall do chliabhán chun bronntanais a’ thabhairt dhuit.

Is feidir go ngortfaidh daoine thú, ‘s do cholann sobhriste bheag
Ach beidh neart agat is leigheasfaigh tú go tapadh

Is feidir go mbeidh am nuair nach n-éistfidh éinne leat
Ach lá éigin beidh glór ‘ad ag dul istigh i gcroí gach duine á chloisteal

Is feidir go mbeidh tú gan baile nó cairde lá amhain
Ach cloisfidh tú ar gceol, ‘s beidh fios ‘ad nach mbeidh tú leat féin

Is feidir trí na cruatain seo nach ngéilfidh tú roimh gruaim
Ach gheobhaidh tú séan is sonas i gceol ‘s i ndúchas i gconaí

Is feidir go mian leat a bheidh pairteach den damhsa na síóga
Ach beidh fios agat cén fath go bhfuil tú pairteach sa domhan seo

The fairies are dancing around your cradle to give you protection
The fairies are dancing around your cradle to give you gifts

It’s possible people will hurt you and your fragile, little body
But you will have strength and will heal quickly

It’s possible there will be a time when no one will listen to you
But some day you will have a voice that touches the heart of everyone who hears it

It’s possible one day you will be homeless and without friends
But you will hear our music, and you will know you’re not alone

It’s possible through these hardships you will not give in to depression
But you will always find joy and prosperity in music and in nature

It’s possible you will wish to join our dance [and be a fairy]
But you will know why you are part of this world
