Lyrics: English Translation:
   
M'ionam air a ghille bheag My thoughts are on the little boy
   
Sist: Chorus:
M'ionam air a ghille bheag My thoughts are on the little boy
Cuin a bheir e gn dhomh? Wondering when he'll bring me a gown?
Cuin a bheir e ct' When will he bring me a coat
Agus cleoc as a' bhth dhomh? Or a cloak from the store?
M'ionam air a ghille bheag My thoughts are on the little boy
Cuin a bheir e gn dhomh? Wondering when he'll bring me a gown?
   
Nuair dh'fhsas e lidir When he grows strong
'S a dh'fhgas e'n dthaich And leaves the country
   
(Sist 2x) (Chorus 2x)
   
Bidh siil ri croinn rda The sails will be on the tall masts
'S mo ghrdhsa ga stiireadh And my love will be at the helm
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Nuair ruigeas i na h-Innsean When the ship reaches the Indies
Thig soda 'gam ionnsaigh Then silk will come back in my direction
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
M'ionam air a ghille bheag... My thoughts are on the little boy...
   
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
'N teile dhe na heireagan The other of the pullet hens
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
Dh'eireagan Shleit am maireach The hens of Sleat tomorrow
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
'N teile dhe na heireagan The other of the pullet hens
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
Dh'eireagan Shleit am maireach The hens of Sleat tomorrow
   
Gheibheadh tu fhein, a ghaoil an t-ugh You, love, would get the egg
Gheibheadh tu fhein, a ghraidh an t-ugh You, dear, would get the egg
Gheibheadh tu fhein, a ghaoil an t-ugh You, love, would get the egg
Nam beireadh na heireagan bana If the fair hen would lay
Gheibheadh tu fhein, a ghaoil an t-ugh You, love, would get the egg
Gheibheadh tu fhein, a ghraidh an t-ugh You, dear, would get the egg
Gheibheadh tu fhein, a ghaoil an t-ugh You, love, would get the egg
Nam beireadh na heireagan bana If the fair hen would lay
   
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
'N teile dhe na heireagan The other of the pullet hens
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
Dh'eireagan Shleit am maireach The hens of Sleat tomorrow
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
'N teile dhe na heireagan The other of the pullet hens
B'fhearr leam fhin gum beireadh an teile I would prefer if the other would bear
Dh'eireagan Shleit am maireach The hens of Sleat tomorrow
