Día dhuit
Ow-ark men-aw egg ubber law-s mowl sun ee
Keow-lun shee-ad er lay-ha gyal, a vee
Bea-loch faw-da anon's an-all a crow-ick

That's the nearest I can get phonetically.The 'ch' is pronounced like the 'ch' in the Scottish 'loch' at the back of the throat. The verse means something on the lines of:
"Look woman are working from dawn to dusk"
"They sing to the bright day"
"Because they have a long journey there and back"
