Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas go heasc í
Caithfimid suas is suas
I seacain a chroí na pleasc í

Caithfimid suas go heasc í
Caithfimid suas is suas
I seacain a chroí na pleasc í

Déanfaidh sí damhsa is damhsa
Déanfaidh sí damhsa le plésiúr
Déanfaidh sí damhsa is damhsa
Mé féin is í féin le chéile
Déanfaidh sí damhsa is damhsa
Déanfaidh sí damhsa le plésiúr
Déanfaidh sí damhsa is damhsa
Mé féin is í féin le chéile

Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas an páiste
Caithfimid suas is suas
Is tiocfaidh sí anuas amárach
Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas an páiste
Caithfimid suas is suas
Is tiocfaidh sí anuas amárach

Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas go heasc í
Caithfimid suas is suas
I seacain a chroí na pleasc í
Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas an páiste
Caithfimid suas is suas
I seacain a chroí na pleasc í

Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas go heasc í
Caithfimid suas is suas
I seacain a chroí na pleasc í

We will throw her up and up
We will throw her up easily
We will throw her up and up
Hopefully she will not explode
We will throw her up and up
We will throw her up easily
We will throw her up and up
Hopefully she will not explode
      
She will dance and dance
She will dance with pleasure
She will dance and dance
Myself and her together
She will dance and dance
She will dance with pleasure
She will dance and dance
Myself and her together
      
We will throw her up and up
We will throw the child up
We will throw her up and up
And she’ll come down tomorrow
We will throw her up and up
We will throw the child up
We will throw her up and up
And she’ll come down tomorrow
      
We will throw her up and up
We will throw her up easily
We will throw her up and up
Hopefully she will not explode
We will throw her up and up
We will throw the child up
We will throw her up and up
Hopefully she will not explode
      
We will throw her up and up
We will throw her up easily
We will throw her up and up
Hopefully she will not explode
