Cailleach liath Ratharsaigh Gray-haired old woman from Raasay
Na ceudan a' tathaich oirre Hundreds calling on her
Cailleach liath Ratharsaigh Gray-haired old woman from Raasay
Is cailleach reamhar R˛naigh And the fat old woman from Rona
Cailleach liath Ratharsaigh Gray-haired old woman from Raasay
Na ceudan a' tathaich oirre Hundreds calling on her
Cailleach liath Ratharsaigh Gray-haired old woman from Raasay

Cailleach dhubh nan cudaigean The black-haired woman of the cuddies
'S iomadh gin a shluig thu dhiubh You swallowed many of them
Cailleach dhubh nan cudaigean The black-haired woman of the cuddies
Is cailleach luideach R˛naigh The messy old woman from Rona
Cailleach dhubh nan cudaigean The black-haired woman of the cuddies
'S iomadh gin a shluig thu dhiubh You swallowed many of them
Cailleach dhubh nan cudaigean The black-haired woman of the cuddies
