Lyrics: English Translation:
   
'Nad shuidhe 'nad aonar Sitting in your loneliest
'Na suidhe le d' smaointean Sitting with your thoughts
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
'Ga cuimhneachadh Remembering her
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Hi ho ru bha ho Hi ho ru bha ho
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
'S na hi ho ru bha ho 'S na hi ho ru bha ho
   
'S na latha ciin is gun bhrn And that calm untroubled time
'N uair a bha Adhamh g When Adam was young
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
Gun bhean is gun chlann Without wife or child
   
Ach a thainig i na luime But naked she came
Is ghlac i fhuil And captured his blood
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
A chainnt is a chrann His reason and his plough
   
'Na shuidhe 'nad elas Sitting in your own knowledge
'Nad shuidhe le d' sgleothan Sitting with your dimming vision
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
'Ga cuimhneachadh Remembering her
   
'S an Gadaiche Dubh And the Black Thief
Leis a charaid furtachail With his supporting friend
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
Boban Saor The legendary Carpenter
   
Is fhuair e bean choir He was given an honest wife
Bho ar stor From our store
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
Is bha i maoth And she was gentle
   
Nisde ni iad a' gaire Now they laugh
A' creids gu robh iad nar sgail Believing they were in our shade
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
Bho'n a cheud latha From the first day
   
Ach de tha sinn a' leantainn But what are we following?
Tha Boban Saor 'nad inntinn Boban Saor is in your mind
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
Is doch' anns a' cheud tuil And he was in the first blood
   
Ach tha muinntir chordaidh There are many virtuous folk
Aig cul an dorais Behind the door
Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro Hi o 's na ho hi ho ro
Is tha e fuar a-muigh And it is cold out
