In case you missed it: Lorde – Ríoga “Royals” as Gaeilge

Lorde’s Classic Hit As Gaeilge:

An baile seo gan mhórtas
Níl aontas ann, Ná bí in éad liom

Ach chuile cheann mar
Dath bréig’, cúlchaint, toitín a’inn sa scuaine
Gloiní, pictiúir, réidh le glacadh dúinne
‘cuma linn
Bradán feasa ná taithí shaoil
ach chuile dhuine mar
Cristal, Maybech, seoda ar do chorp faoi
Eadach, oileáin, duitse ‘mháin don spraoi
‘cuma linn
Níl muid fuaite sa chlaonadh sin

Is níl muid inár ríoga
Ní ritheann sé ionann
An meon sin casta ar a son
Tríd ár bfhéithe — cuisle trom
Lig dom bheith inár ríthe
Fanaigí liom ar an taobh, is feicfidh tú, is tú is tú,
fillfidh muid ar ais arís

Cairde linn – ar gcúis le bród
Ó lá go lá ag druidim linn ar aghaidh
Tá fhios ag chuile dhuine beo
Gur seo mar atá
Ár ndúchas taobh linn

Ach chuile cheann mar
Dath bréig’, cúlchaint, toitín a’inn sa scuaine
Gloiní, pictiúir, réidh le glacadh dúinne
‘cuma linn
Bradán feasa ná taithí shaoil
ach chuile dhuine mar
Cristal, Maybech, seoda ar do chorp faoi
Eadach, oileáin, duitse ‘mháin dhon spraoi
Is cuma linn
Níl muid fuaite sa chlaonadh sin
