Fúnicúlí, Fúnicúla

This has become a bit of a meme tune lately, so I figured I’d get it in here for easy reference by lovers of all rollicking tunes - even if they’re somewhat more neopolitan than irish. But then I found… could it be irish lyric translation?

I found them here:

pasted below.

Tá daoine ann gur breá leo sult is suairceas
Mo dhálta fhéin
Is daoine nach foláir leo bheith go gruama
‘S go cásmhar claon
Hóró! is geal liom féinig bheith go síoraí
Ag déanamh ceoil –
Hóró! ar nós na n-éanlaith ar na croinnte
Ar séis um nóin

Hó ró, hó ró! sult is greann is ceol!
Hó ró, hó ró! sult is greann is ceol!
Fá la la lá, fá la la lá
Fá la la lá, fá la la lá
Sult is greann is ceol
Fá la la lá, fá la la lá

I m’ mhóide féin ba dhúr an cás an saol seo
Gan foinn gan cheol
Go deo ba léanmhar dubhach dó ‘na n-éagmais
Faoi shíor-dhúbhrón
Hóró! ardaímis ceol anois go haerach
Le mórtas croí
Hóró! ‘gus bíodh gach glór le clos in éineacht
Go ceolmhar binn!

Hó ró, hó ró! sult is greann is ceol!
Hó ró, hó ró! sult is greann is ceol!
Fá la la lá, fá la la lá
Fá la la lá, fá la la lá
Sult is greann is ceol
Fá la la lá, fá la la lá

Do you know another version of this tune?
Cinnte, ach tá sé seo thar a bheith suimiúil i ndáiríre!

Fúnicúlí, Fúnicúla, X:2

Shifted the key down so it doesn’t ring so brightly in the ear and is easier to play in the familiar ADorian key.
