Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sist 1: Chorus 1:
Bioranan 's clachan beaga Little sticks and little stones
A' gliogadaich 's a' clagarsaich Clinking and crashing
Bioranan 's clachan beaga Little sticks and little stones
Tirneanaich nam chridhe Thunder in my heart
Bioranan 's clachan beaga Little sticks and little stones
A' gliogadaich 's a' clagarsaich Clinking and crashing
Bioranan 's clachan beaga Little sticks and little stones
Duine beag gun chl Little man without respect
   
Chan fhaca esan ach baothalan bochd He saw only a poor simpleton
Shuidh mi gun chainnt is gun dchas I sat without speech and without hope
   
(Sist 1) (Chorus 1)
   
Chan fhaca ise ach duine le eachdraidh She saw only a man with a story
Sheas mi 's phg mi a lmh I stood and I kissed her hand
   
(Sist 1) (Chorus 1)
   
Sist 2: Chorus 2 (after each verse):
Hu a he a, rinn i rathill Uig o Hu a he a, rinn i rathill Uig o
Hu a he a, rinn i rathill Uig o Hu a he a, rinn i rathill Uig o
Hu a he a, rinn i rathill Uig o Hu a he a, rinn i rathill Uig o
   
Glaiste nur n-aonar Locked in your loneliness
'S nur cadal tro na rithean Alone and asleep through the seasons
A' feitheamh anns an dorchadas Waiting in the darkness
Linntean a' fs ho lithean Centuries growing out of days
   
Eadar ln agus trigh Between high and low tide
Rugadh caisteal anns a' ghainmhich A castle in the sand was born
Falaichte is fulangach Hidden and passive
Saor bho dhon frdaich Free from your protective prison
   
Seall air a' Bhnrigh Look at the queen
Aodann oirr' fo iomagain Her face so worried
Doghaltas air fiamh an Rgh Vengeance on the King's expression
Saighdearan cho eagalach And soldiers full of fear
   
'S dch' gu bheil iad draoidheil Perhaps they are enchanted
Gheibh mi mach an fhrinn I'll search for the truth
Ach feumaidh mi bhith gluasad But I will have to travel
Gu caisteal ann an Lunnainn To a castle in London
