Title is also the name of a 1974 Bryan Ferry solo album.

Towards the middle (near the end), the real lyrics go like...

"...Yeah-ya-yi, yeah-yeah-hah
She's a beauty, Hallie
Yes we all look down, he's been had
Love's what she's been holding..."
- Mickey D., Fremont, CA
I dont think it's Gaelic - I think it's German
- Rudi, UK, England
Towards the middle (near the end) of the song, Bono speaks in Gaelic. I don't believe a translation has ever been done. Also, when performing the song live, Bono would just improvise this part (in English).
