1  Tomorrow, Comrade, we
on the battle-plain must be,
There to conquer, or both to lie low,
The morning star is up,
but there's wine still in the cup,
And we'll take another quaff ere we go.
Gramachree ma Cruiskeen,
Slauthegal mavourneen,
Gramachree ma Cruiskeen lawn.

2  'Tis true in manliest eyes
a passing tear will rise
when we think of the friends we leave lone1
But what can weeping do?
See, our goblet's weeping too!
With its tears we'll chase away our own.
Gramachree ma Cruiskeen,
Slauthegal mavourneen,
Gramachree ma Cruiskeen lawn.
