Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Fill ill o agus ho ro ile Faill ill o agus ho ro eile
Fill ill o agus ho ro ile Faill ill o agus ho ro eile
Fill ill o agus ho ro ile Faill ill o agus ho ro eile
A fhleasgaich dhuinn nach ann duinn a dh'irich Brown-haired youth, what a thing befell us
   
Saoil sibh fhin nach mi bha truagh dheth Do you think that I was a poor soul
Feasgar foghair air achadh bhuana On an autumn evening in the harvest field?
A h-uile t 's a fear fhin ri guallainn Every woman with her man at her shoulder
'S mo leannan donn-sa air bhrr nan cuantan And my brown-haired love on the ocean
   
Shiibhlinn, shiibhlinn, shiibhlinn fhin leat I would travel, travel, travel with you
Shiibhlinn fada troimh choill nan geug leat I would travel far through the woods with you
'S nuair bha mi g mi air bheagan cille When I was young and had little sense
Gur e do ghaol-sa a rinn mo lireadh It was your love that wounded me
   
Gheall mo mhthair finne ir dhomh My mother promised me a gold ring
Gheall m'athair buaile bh dhomh My father promised me a fold of cattle
'S ged gheibhinn siud is an saoghal mr leis Though I'd get that and the whole world with it
Is mr gum b'annsa leam gaol an igeir I would far rather have the young man's love
   
Fill ill o agus ho ro ile Faill ill o agus ho ro eile
Fill ill o agus ho ro ile Faill ill o agus ho ro eile
Fill ill o agus ho ro ile Faill ill o agus ho ro eile
A fhleasgaich dhuinn nach ann duinn a dh'irich Brown-haired youth, what a thing befell us
