Lyrics: English Translation:
   
O h 's na h i o O hi sna hi iu o
H ri r 's na h i o Hi ri ri sna hi iu o
O h r 's na h i o O hi ri sna hi iu o
'S e mo rn an t-oighr' g My love is the young heir
   
Oighr' ig a Dun-bheagain Young heir of Dunvegan
Nam poban 's nam feadan Of the pipes and of the chanters
'S mi gun danadh do fhreagairt It is I who would answer you
Le fead cinn a' mheir With a whistle, using the tips of the fingers
   
Tha bhlan nad ghrradh There are apples in your garden
Agus peuran a' fs ann And pears are growing there
Tha do chrodh air brr fsaich Your cattle are on the upper pasture
'S tha do bhta fo shel And you ship is under sail
   
Sguiridh mise gad iargain I shall stop yearning for you
Bho nach fhaigh mi thu 'm bliadhn' Since I shall not get you this year
Ach seo mo lmh nach mi chiad t I am not the first one by any means
Fhuair briathran do bheil Who was deceived by you
   
O h 's na h i o O hi sna hi iu o
H ri r 's na h i o Hi ri ri sna hi iu o
O h r 's na h i o O hi ri sna hi iu o
'S e mo rn an t-oighr' g My love is the young heir
