Tha mi sgith 's mi leam fhin I am tired and I am alone
Buain a rainich, buain a rainich Cutting the bracken, cutting the bracken
Tha mi sgith 's mi leam fhin I am tired and I am alone
Buain a rainich daonnan Cutting the bracken forever
   
'S bochd nach robh mi leat a rithist It's bad that I'm not with you again
Sinn a bhitheadh ce˛lmhˇr We would be great music
Rachainn leat gu c¨l na cruinne I'd go with you to the other side of the world
Air bhÓrr tuinne se˛ladh Sailing on top of the waves
   
Ciod am feum dhomh bhi ri tuireadh? Why must I be mourning?
DÚ ni tuireadh dhomhsa? What will make a chant to me?
