  • Mickey D. from Fremont, CaTowards the middle (near the end), the real lyrics go like...

    She's a beauty, Hallie
    Yes we all look down, he's been had
    Love's what she's been holding..."
  • Rudi from Uk, EnglandI dont think it's Gaelic - I think it's German
  • Katie from Memphis, TnTowards 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).
