Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
‘Seo nó ansúid dom, bíonn sé de shíor liom, ceol an ghrá
I lár na cathrach breá, cois abhainn nó ar trá
Cloisim an tiún, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
Canann an t-éinín é, casann an ghaoth dom é, ceol an ghrá
Maidin nó lár an lae, cloisim i gcónaí é
Éist leis an túin, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Seo Tír na nÓg is tá sciatháin in áit mo chos
Anois is go deo tá an sonas romham, thall is abhus
Is tú, mo chroí de lá is d’oích’
Is gach uile nóiméad de’m’ shaol

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
‘Seo nó ansúid dom, bíonn sé de shíor liom, ceol an ghrá
I lár na cathrach breá, cois abhainn nó ar trá
Cloisim an tiún, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
‘Seo nó ansúid dom, bíonn sé de shíor liom, ceol an ghrá
I lár na cathrach breá, cois abhainn nó ar trá
Cloisim an tiún, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

I lár na cathrach breá, cois abhainn nó ar trá
Cloisim an tiún, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Translation
Listen, listen, I hear it again, the music of love
Here or beyond me, it’s eternally with me, the music of love
In the centre of the lovely city, beside the river or on the beach
I hear the tune, you are my sweetheart, that’s the music of love

Listen, listen, I hear it again, the music of love
The little bird sings it, the wind plays it for me, the music of love
Morning or midday, I always hear it
Listen to the tune, you are my sweetheart, that’s the music of love

This is the Land of Eternal Youth and wings are in place of my legs
Now and forever happiness is before me, all around
You are my sweetheart by day and by night
And every single moment of my life

Listen, listen, I hear it again, the music of love
Here or beyond me, it’s eternally with me, the music of love
In the centre of the lovely city, beside the river or on the beach
I hear the tune, you are my sweetheart, that’s the music of love

Listen, listen, I hear it again, the music of love
Here or beyond me, it’s eternally with me, the music of love
In the centre of the lovely city, beside the river or on the beach
I hear the tune, you are my sweetheart, that’s the music of love

In the centre of the lovely city, beside the river or on the beach
I hear the tune, you are my sweetheart, that’s the music of love

    A gem of a song! The turbulent political situation in the early 70s mitigated against this doing as well as it should. Perhaps if it were in the key of C/C# instead of G/G# it would have registered more. Even as is it is one of the gems of ESC.
