Hi o r 's na ho ro ile Hi o ro 's na ho ro eile
Hi o r 's na ho ro ile Hi o ro 's na ho ro eile
Hi o r 's na ho ro ile Hi o ro 's na ho ro eile
Gur tu mo luaidh rim bhe cha cheil mi I will never hide the fact that you are my love
   
Nuair a bha mi'm chaileig ghraich When I was a foolish young girl
Thug mi gaol is gradh don igear I gave my love to the young man
Aig a bheil a'phearsa bhidheach Of the most beautiful appearance
'S cha ghrdhaich mi rim bhe fear eile And I will never love another man
   
Do chl dualach, cuachach, bidheach Your beautiful ringlets and curly mane
Falt do chinn mar ite 'n lin-duibh Your head of hair like the wing of the blackbird
Do dh ghruaidh air dhreach nan rsan Your two cheeks the hue of roses
Is iad fo dhealta ce na maidne Under the misty dew of the morning
   
Ach tha mise 'n dil 's an dchas But it is my strong hope
Gun tig an l 's am bidh sinn cmhla The day will come when we will be together
'S ma bhios tusa dleas dmhsa And if you are faithful to me
Cha ghrdhaich mi rim bhe fear eile I will give my love to no other man
