Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Ho r mo nighean donn bhidheach Ho ro my beautiful brown-haired maiden
Hi r mo nighean donn bhidheach Hi ri my beautiful brown-haired maiden
Mo chaileag laghach bhidheach My kind, beautiful maiden
Cha phsainn ach thu I would not marry anyone but you
   
A nighean donn nam blth-shl Oh brown-haired maiden of the warm eyes
Gur trom a thug mi grdh dhut I loved you deeply
Tha d'iomhaigh, ghaoil, is d'illeachd Your appearance, dear, and your beauty
A ghnth tigh'nn fom idh Always come into my mind
   
Cha cheil mi air an t-saoghal I shall not conceal from the world
Gu bheil mo mhiann 's mo ghaol ort That you are my desire and that I love you
'S ged chaidh mi uat air faondradh And though I strayed from you
Cha chaochail mo rn My love will not change
   
Ach nuair a thig an samhradh But when the sumer comes
Bheir mise sgrob don ghleann ud I shall make a trip to that glen
'S gun tog mi leam don Ghalldachd And I shall take with me to the Lowlands
Gu h-annsail am flr Lovingly, the flower
   
Ho r mo nighean donn bhidheach Ho ro my beautiful brown-haired maiden
Hi r mo nighean donn bhidheach Hi ri my beautiful brown-haired maiden
Mo chaileag laghach bhidheach My kind, beautiful maiden
Cha phsainn ach thu I would not marry anyone but you
