Hi ri o ho ro hu o Hi ri o ho ro hu o

'S mi air tulaich na buaile On the mound of the cowfold
   
Cha d' fhuair mi an-raoir cadal Last night I was sleepless
   
Air an leabaidh, 's mi 'm nar On my bed and lonely
   
'S mi 'g ionndrainn mo leannain For my lover I was longing
   
Fleasgaich, fearail, ciin, elach A youth wise, calm and manly
   
Fear a' chinne Mhic Cailein Of the race of Mac Cailein
   
Thig o thalla nan riseal From the hall of the banners
   
Ach a Ruairi, 's a Ruairi But Rory, oh Rory
   
Na creid gun tuirt mise Don't believe that I told them
   
Gun gibhtinn mo ghruagach That I'd not give up my maiden
   
Cha ghibhtinn 's cha gheallainn I'd not give her, nor promise
   
'S cha mhalairtinn uam i Nor would I exchange her
   
Cha tugainn air r i For gold I'd not give her
   
No air chrn an t-sril uaine Nor for roll of green satin
   
'S mi air th bhith 'ga faire Intently I watch her
   
Mum mealladh fear uam i Lest anyone lure her from me
