Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Togaibh an t-Arannach Lift up the Arran man
'S fgamaid Ile And we will leave Islay
Togaibh o'n talamh e Lift him from the ground
Aonghas, mo ghrdh-sa Angus, my dear one
Togaibh an t-Arannach Lift up the Arran man
'S leigibh a sos e And take him up from below
Arainn 's an t-sealladh dhuinn Arran is in our sights
Togaibh an crn Build up the cairn
   
Togaibh an carragh Build the monument
Gach caraid is dleas Every friend and faithful one
Togaibh an carragh Build the monument
Air mullach Bheinn Bhin On the peak of Beinn Bhin
Togaibh an carragh Build the monument
Air talamh nan Ileach On Islay soil
Arainn 's an t-sealladh dhuinn Arran is in our sights
Togaibh an crn Build up the cairn
   
Dhachaidh do dh' Arainn Home to Arran
O denaibh a ghilan Oh bear his corpse
Esan bha airidh He who was worthy
Air cli anns a' bhlr Of praise on the battlefield
Ruigibh an cala Reach the harbor
Is greasaibh an iubhrach And prepare the sailboat
Is rachadh i thairis And she will carry
Le Aonghas, mo ghrdh Angus, my dear one, home
