Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Buaidh na brdachd, mo chiad ghaoil Muse, my first love
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Reul as dealraicht' air an t-saoghal Brightest star in all the world
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Ged tha do cheutadh fad bhom ghreim Although your affection is far from my grasp
Chuimhnidh mi do lathaireachd 's dhuisg mo chr The memory of your presence wakens my being
Guth mar rs, smuain mar dris A voice like a rose, emotion like a thorn
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
   
Buaidh na brdachd gealach ghlan Muse, a single moon
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Gun ionnsaidh, mheall thu fir-nan-dn Without effort you enticed the poets
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Mar dreag, bhris iad ar reul-bhad r Like a meteor they shattered our golden constellation
Bha thu nad bhlath 's iad na glir You were in your blooming and they in their glory
Fear-amhairc sanntach, miannach 's eud Covetous, desirous, jealous bystander
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
   
Buaidh na brd, mo ghaol bth-bhuan Muse, my everlasting love
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Thuit gu lr, flr-bhileagan Your petals fell to the earth
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Ged bhreab thu mi gu tosdach, ghaoil Although you spurned me mutely, love
Mo smuain ar thriall nad ghealaich shaoir My thoughts are on your clear moon's path
Gam mhealladh gum chadal ciin Enticing me to my peaceful sleep
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
Och, faillin o Och, faillin o
