Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Cagaran, cagaran, cagaran gaolach Little darling, little darling, lovable little darling
Cagaran laghach thu, fear dhe mo dhaoine Pleasant little darling, one of my own kin
Goididh e gobhar dhomh, goididh e caoraich He will steal goats for me, he will steal sheep
Goididh e sýthean a innis an aonaich He will steal a fairy man from the hillside meadow
   
Cagaran, cagaran, cagaran gaolach Little darling, little darling, lovable little darling
Cagaran odhar, na cloinneam mo dhaoine Pale little darling, a child of my own kin
Goididh e gobhar dhomh, goididh e caoraich He will steal goats for me, he will steal sheep
Goididh e laos-buig air innis an aonaich He will steal a wether goat on the hillside meadow
   
Cagaran, cagaran, cagaran gaolach Little darling, little darling, lovable little darling
Cagaran laghach thu, cagaran gaol thu Pleasant little darling, darling of my love
Dean do chadalan, d¨in do sh¨ilean Go to sleep, close your eyes
Rinn thu cadalan, fosgail do sh¨ilean Wake up again, open your eyes
   
Cagaran, cagaran, cagaran gaolach Little darling, little darling, lovable little darling
Cagaran laghach thu, fear dhe mo dhaoine Pleasant little darling, one of my own kin
Goididh e gobhar dhomh, goididh e caoraich He will steal goats for me, he will steal sheep
Goididh e sýthean a innis an aonaich He will steal a fairy man from the hillside meadow
