Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Na h o hi, na h o h Na hu o hi, na hu o ho
Hu o o eile Hu o u o eile
Na h o hi, na h o h Na hu o hi, na hu o ho
Nach truagh leat mi 's tu 'n irinn You don't care much for me while you're in Ireland
   
'S ann their iad rium on chaidh thu null They say to me since you went over
Gum bi thu tric aig filltean That you are often at fairs
'S gum bi thu cuspaireachd le mirn And that you talk lovingly
Ri Mili ruadh an irinn To red-haired Mili in Ireland
   
Ged sheladh tu air feadh a' chuain Although you were to sail all over the ocean
'S ged ruigeadh tu an iphit And although you would reach Egypt
Cha thriginn thu air sgth do chli I would not forsake you because of your reputation
'S cha toirinn gill do bhreugan And I would not heed lies
   
O nach robh agam sgiathan caol Oh had I slender wings
Gun sibhlainn thar na slibhtean To travel over the mountains
Gu seinninn-sa mo dhuanag gaoil I would sing my love ditty
Ri fear tha tmh an irinn To one who lives in Ireland
