Mike Oldfield's, "Ommadawn"
The Lyrics:
Ab yul ann I dyad awt en yab na log a toc na awd taw may on ommadawn egg kyowl ommadawn egg kyowl ...
These Gaelic words are chanted by Clodagh Symonds near the end of side 1 of this beatiful suite from the composer of "Tubular Bells" (which some foks know as the theme from The Exorcist).
The translated lyrics basically are: "The cat is in the kitchen, drinking milk...I am a fool with music..."
