Ille dhuinn chaidh tu'm dhth Brown-haired lad, I have lost you

Ille dhuinn a dh'fhalbh a Brgaig Brown-haired lad who left Brogaig
Bidh mi brnach gun tig fios ort I shall be sad until word comes about you
   
Ille dhuinn an leadain dualaich Brown-haired lad of the plaited locks
'S ann Diluain a fhuair mi fios uat It was on Monday I got word from you
