Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Nach truagh leat mi 's mi 'm prosan Do you not pity me, as I'm in prison
Mo Mhaili bheag g? My little young Molly?
   
Nach truagh leat mi 's mi 'm prosan Do you not pity me, as I'm in prison
Mo Mhaili bheag g? My little young Molly?
Do chirdean a' cur binn orm Your friends are condemning me
Mo chuid dhe 'n t-saoghal thu You, my whole world
A bhean na mala mne Oh woman of the smooth eyebrows
'S na pgan mar na fogais And kisses as sweet as figs
'S tu nach fhgadh shos mi You would not degrade me
Le mi-rn do bheil With malice from your mouth
   
Di Dmhnaich anns a' ghleann dhuinn It was on Sunday as we rode through the glen
Mo Mhaili bheag g My little young Molly
Nuair a thisich mi ri cainnt riut That I began conversing with you
Mo chuid dhe 'n t-saoghal mhr All that I have on earth
Nuair a dh'fhosgail mi mo shilean When I opened my eyes
'S a sheall mi air mo chlaibh And looked over my shoulder
Bha marcaich' nan each crdhach The riders on shoed horses
'Tighinn dlth air mo thir Were drawing near in my pursuit
   
'S mis' a bh'air mo bhuaireadh I became confounded
Mo Mhaili bheag g My little young Molly
Nuair thnaig sluagh mun cuairt dhuinn When we were surrounded by a host
Mo ribhinn ghlan r My innocent, young girl
Is truagh anns an uair sin It's a pity that my arm
Nach do thuit mo lmh o m'ghualainn Did not then fall from my shoulder
Mun d'amais mi do bhualadh Before I happened to strike you with a sword blow
Mo Mhaili bheag g My little young Molly
   
Gur bidhche leam a dh'fhs thu You have grown to be lovelier
Mo Mhaili bheag g My little young Molly
Na 'n lil anns an fhsach Than the wild meadow's lily
Mo chiad ghrdh 's mo rn My first love and darling
Mar aiteal caoin na grineadh In your hue and form
Am madainn chiin ag irigh You were like a soft ray of sunshine
B'e siud do dhreach 's t'eugais On a still morning
Mo Mhaili bheag g My little young Molly
