Him og Him og

Mhorag Bheag a'chul dualaich Wee Morag of the curls down her back
Gu de dh'fhag an gruaim air t'aire What has left you in such a bad mood?
   
'G iomain a chruaidh-laoidh gu buaile Leading the cow-with-calf to the field
'S nach fhaic mi mo luaidh a dh'fhearaibh And I shall not see my sweetheart, lads
   
'G iomain a chruaidh-laoidh gu airidh Leading the cow-with-calf to the sheiling
'S nach fhaic mi mo ghradh a dh'fhearaibh And I shall not see my darling, lads
   
Suithadaibh luadhaibh an clo Go on and waulk the tweed-cloth
Gu deise phosaidh dha mo leannan For a wedding-suit for my beloved
   
Tha te ur am buth an tailleir There's a new one in the tailor's shop
'S thig i an duigh na 'maireach dhachaidh And she is coming home today or tomorrow
   
Chan eil mo leannan-sa ga h-iarriadh My beloved does not want it
Tha te liath aige's te thartain He has a gray one and a tartan one
