Amhrán na gCupán – The “Cup Song” In Irish

 

Yep! The Cup Song is going viral around the world now. The song “When I’m Gone” from “Pitch Perfect” movie is really a hit among teenagers worldwide.

About 600 people, Irish students and staff, performed this hit singing in Irish (Gaeilge).  In this video the students line the floor and play the drums on their plastic cups as a single singer (Laoibhse Ní Nualláin) leads the way.

 

Here the version in Irish (Gaeilge) if you want to sing along:
Amhrán na gCupán

Tá an ticéad a’am don bhealach fada
Dhá bhuidéal uisce don turas
Is ba bhreá liom cara a bheith in éindí liom
Mé ag fágáil amárach, mbeidh tú liom?

Nuair ‘tá mé imithe
Nuair ‘tá mé imithe
Aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s gan mé ann
Aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s mo aoibh
Aireoidh tú uait mé ‘chuile
thaobh
Ó, aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s gan mé ann

Tá an ticéad ‘am don bhealach fada
Tá an saol mór ag fanacht liom
Measc na sléibhte, taobh na habhann
Ait a bhíonn an t-aer breá úr
Beidh sé i bhfad níos deiseleat a stóir

Nuair ‘tá mé imithe
Nuair ‘tá mé imithe
Aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s gan mé ann
Aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s me ag caint
Aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s mé ag seinnt
Ó, aireoidh tú uait mé ‘s gan mé ann
