'S toigh leam Ailean Dubh Lochaidh I like dark Alan from Lochy
Mo ghaol Ailean donn a' chta My love Alan with the brown coat
'S toigh leam Ailean Dubh Lochaidh I like dark Alan from Lochy
   
Ailean, Ailean, 's ait leam be thu Alan, Alan, I am pleased you're living
   
Sguab thu mo spridh bhrr na mintich You swept me cattle from the moorland
   
Loisg thu m' iodhlann choirce is erna You burned my stackyard of oats and barley
   
Mharbh thu mo thiir bhrithrean ga You killed my three youthful brothers
   
Mharbh thu m' athair is m' fhear psta You killed my father and my husband
   
'S ged rinn thu siud 's ait leam be thu Though you did that, I'm pleased you're living
