Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
I hiraibh o, chan eil mi sln I hiuraibh o, I am not well
Hug rainn o, chan fhaod mi tmh Hug orainn o, I cannot be at rest
I hiraibh o, chan eil mi sln I hiuraibh o, I am not well
   
'S muladach a' buain an ln mi Sad I am harvesting the flax
'S deir mo chinn a' ruith gu lr With my tears falling to the ground
   
Dhmhnaill Ghuirm ma rinn thu m'eucoir Though you did me an injustice, Donald Gorm
Bha mi dhuit mar th do chch I treated you like any of the other women would
   
Bha mi dhuit mar do phiuthar I treated you as your sister would
Mun robh mi tuilleadh 's na b'fherr Perhaps even better
   
'S truagh nach robh mi'n riochd na faoileig' It's a shame that I wasn't like a seagull
'S aotrom dhanainn air an t-snmh Swimming gently
   
Dealachadh ri Iain is Dmhnall Separating from Ian and Donald
A leag mo dheir le cion-fth My tears flowing for a reason
   
Beannachd Dh bhi agad Eachainn God's blessing with you, Hector
Bu tu mo roghainn thar chich You would be my choice above all
   
Bidh mi nisde triall romham There is now a journey before me
Is deir mo chinn a' ruith gu lr And my tears flowing to the ground
