OMI's Cheerleader covered by Irish summer school Colaiste Lurgan

Published 09/07/2015

Independent Irish language summer school Colaiste Lurgan has done it again.

The Gaeilge enthusiasts have put their rapping and reggae skills to the test and have mastered OMI's hit song Cheerleader.

Cian Mac Gearailt and Stephanie Hurley take the helm on the crew's latest tune 'Síoraí Spraoi', adding to their catalogue of hits.

The crowd from Colaiste Lurgan have also mastered Irish versions of Avicii, Hozier , Sam Smith, Coldplay and Macklemore songs that have gone viral on social media.

Their version of Avicii's Wake Me Up has clocked up over 4.5m views.

Here are the Irish lyrics of Cheerleader if you want to sing along:

Véarsa1

Nuair a bhíonn spreagadh an lae uaim

Is tú an chúis - is tú a bhíonn mar ghalláin glé dom (yeah yeah)

I gcónaí casadh coirneáil

Is léir go bhfuil an t-ádh liom

Cailín’ eile iad ag gealladh

Ach ní féidir mé a mhealladh

 

Droichead

D’teastaíonn me uait?

mbogann mé do chroi dhuit?

bhfuil tu gafa faoi mo gheasa

Abair liom go bhfuil tú cinnte

 

Curfá

Ó,a chroí beidh muide gcónaí síoraí spraoi

Brionglóid fútsa gan teip gach aon oí-che

Ó,a chroí beidh muide gcónaí síoraí spraoi

Brionglóid fútsa gan teip gach aon oí-che

 

Véarsa 2

A’ breathnú ort le tamall

‘g iarraidh d’airde le mo chloigeann thuas sna scamaill

Nuair a thógann tú mo lámh

Airíonn gach rud sona sámh

Cailín' eile iad ag gealladh

Ach ní féidir mé a mhealladh

 

Véarsa3

Toram grá, níl aon cheist faoi

Sin an chaoi ata sé, cinnte is tú grá mo chroí

Ní athróidh mé mo intinn

Breá le mo chairde thú , síleann siad go bhfuil tú togha

Níl tada 'nois le rá is léir don saol gur tú mo rogha
