Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Cheart cho luath 's a dh'imich thu As soon as you emigrated
'S an tir shuas gu'n d'innis iad They spoke of it all over the land
'S ged bha do ghaol mar theine dhomh And although your love was like a fire within me
Cha 'n fhaiceadh cach mi sileadh leis I would not let others see how much it affects me
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
'S olc a dh'fhag an uiridh mi Last year left me feeling very poorly
An uiridh, 'n uiridh, 'n uiridh mi It was last year, last year, last year
'S olc a dh'fhag an uiridh mi Last year left me feeling very poorly
An uiridh dh'fhalbh an gille uam Last year my beloved went from me
   
'S e thug dhomhs' sud iomrachadh What has made me mention this
Eagal mo chliu a mhilleadh leis Is the fear of my reputation being spoiled
'S ged bheirinn eibh a chluinneadh tu And supposing I gave a long shout you could hear
Gu 'm faiceadh cach nach pilleadh tu It'd be obvious to others that you'd not return
   
Nis o'n chaidh thu as an tir Now that you've gone from this land
'S iad do dhaoin' a 's fine liom Your people are the ones I think most of
Gur h-e do ghaol is tinne dhomh Your love is what is most important to me
'S do chliu o chach a 's binne liom And to hear your praises from others is sweetest to me
