Lyrics added by Frederick Edward Weatherly

[Instrumental: ]

O Dan-ny Boy / the pipes / the pipes are ca-al-ling /
from glen to glen / and down the moun-tain side /
The sum-mer’s gone / and all the roses fa-a-ling /
Tis you / tis you / must go / and I must bide /

But come ye back / when sum-mer’s in the mea-ea-dow /
or when the val-ley’s hushed / and white with snow /
Tis I’ll be here / in sun-shine or in sha-a-dow /
Oh Dan-ny Boy / oh Dan-ny Boy / I love you so /

[ ]

But when ye come / and all the flowers are dy-y-ing /
and I am dead / as dead I well may be /
Ye’ll come and find / the place where I am ly-y-ing
and kneel and say / an A-ve there for me /

And I shall hear / though soft / you tread a-bo-o-ve me /
and all my grave will war-mer / swee-ter be /
For you will bend / and tell me that you lo-o-ve me /
and I shall sleep in peace / un-til you come / to me!

傳統翻譯:

噢! 丹尼少年,笛聲正在召喚
從山谷間到山的另一邊
夏沆已走遠,花兒都已枯萎
你得離去,而我得等待

但你回來了,當夏沆回到草原上的時候
或是當山谷沉靜下來,因雪而白了頭的時候
我一定會去那兒,不論是陽光普照或陰影覆蓋
噢! 丹尼少年,我是多麽的愛你

如果你在百花凋謝的時候前來
而我已經死去,死的很安詳
你會前來,找到我長眠之地
跪下來和我說”再見”

我會傾聽,雖然你輕柔的踩在我上面
我的夢將會更溫暖而甜蜜
如果你真的對我說你愛我
我會在平靜中安息,直到你來我身邊
