The women of Ireland

There's a woman in Ireland who'd give me a gem and my fill to drink,
There's a woman in Ireland to whom my singing is sweeter than the music of strings
There's a woman in Ireland who would much prefer me leaping
Than laid in the clay and my belly under the sod
There's a woman in Ireland who'd envy me if I got naught but a kiss
From a woman at a fair, isn't it strange, and the love I have for them
There's a woman I'd prefer to a battalion, and a hundred of them whom I will never get
And an ugly, swarthy man with no English has a beautiful girl
There's a woman who would say that if I walked with her I'd get the gold
And there's the woman of the shirt whose mien is better than herds of cows
With a woman who would deafen baile an mhaoir and the plain of tyrone
And I see no cure for my disease but to give up the drink

A couple of errors:
verse 1 lineS 3 & 4: "tá bean in Éirinn is níorbh fhearr léi beo
Mise ag léimnigh nó..."
"There is a woman in Ireland who would not prefer me alive and leaping than..."

Verse 3 line 3: "bhuairfeadh" doesn't mean "would deafen", more like "would perturb/vex/worry/trouble/cause sorrow for". (the root verb is "buair", see And the English name of Baile an Mhaoir is Ballymoyer.

Incidentally, there's no "atá" in that line, just "tá".

It's a nice song, seems a bit odd when sung by a woman but no odder than when I sing Crucán na bPáiste.

I posit to you this: some women love women*
