Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
A Mhiri bhidheach 's a Mhiri ghaolach Oh beautiful Mary, darling Mary
A Mhiri bhidheach gur mr mo ghaol ort Oh beautiful Mary, my love for you is vast
A Mhiri bhidheach gur tu a chlaoidh mi Oh beautiful Mary, you tormented me
'S a dh'fhg mi brnach gun digh air t' fhaotainn And left me unhappy with no means of winning your affection
   
A Mhiri bhidheach gur mr mo ghaol ort Oh beautiful Mary, my love for you is great
Gur tric mi 'cuimhneachadh ort 's mi m'nar I often think of you when I'm alone
Ged a shiubhlainn gach ceum dhe'n t-saoghal Although I should travel the world over
Bidh t' iomhaigh bidheach 'tighinn be gach taobh dhiom I will see your living image at every turn
   
'S truagh nach robh mi 's mo Mhiri bhidheach It's a pity that beautiful Mary and I weren't
Ann an gleannan faoin 's ce air In the little, lonely, mist covered glen
Ged bu rgh mi 's an Roinn-Erpa Although I should rule all Europe
Chan iarrainn pg ach o Mhiri bhidheach My only desire would be a kiss from beautiful Mary
   
Ach chthear fidh air sgith 's na speuran Deer will be seen flying across the skies
'S chthear iasg air ird nan slibhtean Fish will be found high on mountain slopes
Chthear sneachda dubh air gheugan And black snow will be seen on tree branches
Mum faicear caochladh tighinn air mo spis dhut Before my love for you will ever change
   
Guma sln dha mo Mhiri bhidheach All the best for my beautiful Mary
Ge b'e ite 's am bidh i 'chmhnaidh Wherever she may dwell
'Se mo dhrachd cho fad 's is be mi As long as I live, my wish is
Gum bidh gach slas aig Miri bhidheach That she will have every happiness
