On a mountain stands a lady, song / Margaret McDaid, Olive McDonnell & Ruby Sweeney, singing in English

On a mountain stands a lady
Who she is I do not know
She has lost her gold and silver
All she wants is somebody else

Call in my Ruby oh, my Ruby oh, my Ruby oh
Call in my Ruby oh
Till I get out to play...
