Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Ma bhios tu fo mhulad If you are unhappy
Grdhaichidh mi thu I will love you
Grdhaichidh mi thu, mo leanabh I will love you, my child
   
Fhad 's tha thu fhathast a' laighe nam phg While you are still lying in my embrace
Seinn ran forghlan Sing a pure song
Mus tig creach nad bhinneas g Before your young melody is tainted
Seinn o mo naoidhean Sing, my little one
   
Fhad 's tha thu fhathast gun imcheist While you are still without distraction
ist ri na guthan simh Listen to the soft voices
Mus teich thu bhon fhear chagarsach Before you turn from those who whisper
ist o mo leanabh Listen, my child
   
Fhad 's tha thu fhathast gun fiatachd Until you learn modesty
Danns ann an earbsa Dance with confidence
Mus fhs do cheum trom le m-thlachd Before your steps grow heavy with resentment
Danns o mo phiste Dance, my child
   
Fhad 's tha thu fhathast saor bho dhth While you are still without want
Caidil gu simh Sleep peacefully
Is gabh gach gealladh 's grs bhom chridh' And take every promise and blessing from my heart
Caidil o mo leanabh Sleep, my child
