Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Ghabh iad bhur n-ainm They took your name
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
Ga imlich le fanaid And licked it with a sneer
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
   
Taisichte gu taois Moistened to pulp
A' sileadh grin Hatred dripping from it
A' sgaoileadh gu eas Accelerating to a cascade
'S a' togail na dhigh And picking up in its wake
   
Na breguan a' sgith The lies spewing
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
Bho ego a' chrochadair From the Executioner's ego
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
   
Fama clamosa, fama clamosa Whispering rumors, whispering rumors
Fama clamosa, fama clamosa Whispering rumors, whispering rumors
Fama clamosa, fama clamosa Whispering rumors, whispering rumors
Fama clamosa, fama clamosa Whispering rumors, whispering rumors
   
Stamp iad cas chearbach They stamped their clumpsy feet
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
Ann an dannsa buadhach In a victory dance
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
   
Steallaidhean a' sptadh The splashes spouting
Miannach sanntach Desirous, covetous
Is dh'fhg iad bhur n-ainm And they left your name
Uair tuilichte le bhur geall Once saturated with promise
   
Ann an ln ln fuigheill In a puddle thick with refuse
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
A' danamh sabaid son anail Fighting for breath
Fama clamosa Whispering rumors
   
Bhur cinn a' gliogadaich, gliobaiste nan glir Your heads drenched, glistening in glory
Is bhur cuach-fhalt a' luasgadh fo anail nan neil And your curls swinging in the breath of fresh air
Bhur cinn a' gliogadaich, gliobaiste nan glir Your heads drenched, glistening in glory
Is bhur cuach-fhalt a' luasgadh fo anail nan neil And your curls swinging in the breath of fresh air
