Aileen Aroon 4

Aileen Aroon 4

Will you go or will you stay, Aileen Aroon,
And will you go or will you stay, Aileen Aroon,
   Will you go or will you stay,
   Will you go or will you stay,
   Will you, will you, will you,
   Will you go or stay,
O will you go or will you stay, Aileen Aroon.

One hundred thousand welcomes to you Aileen Aroon,
One hundred thousand welcomes to you Aileen Aroon,
   One hundred thousand welcomes to you,
   Seven thousand welcomes to you,
   Eight thousand, nine thousand,
   Ten thousand welcomes to you,
O welcomes and fine? root?, Aileen Aroon.

I shall go and shall not stay love of my heart,
O I shall go and shall not stay love of my heart,
   I shall go and shall not stay,
   I shall go and shall not stay,
   I shall go, I shall go,
   I shall go and shall not stay,
O, I shall go and shall not stay, love of my heart.

   The song is in Gaelic, spelled phonetically, and apparently in
Ulster dialect. (Private communication from Dr. Patrick A. G.
O'Hare,)  Dr. O'Hare's literal translation (of EILAROO3) of the 1776
version.
