Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Seo a bhliadhna dh'fhg mi dubhach This is the year that left me depressed
Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho
Chaill mi mo bhrthair 's mo phiuthar I lost my brother and my sister
H ho ro h, air fireal il Hi ho ro hi, air faireal il o
   
Chaill mi mo bhrthair 's mo phiuthar I lost my brother and my sister
Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho
Chan e sin a tha mi cumha That is not what I lament
H ho ro h, air fireal il Hi ho ro hi, air faireal il o
   
Chan e sin a tha mi cumha That is not what I lament
Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho
Ach igear g an ir-fhuilt bhuidhe But the young man of the golden hair
H ho ro h, air fireal il Hi ho ro hi, air faireal il o
   
Ach igear g an ir-fhuilt bhuidhe But the young man of the golden hair
Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho
Bhith'n ciste chaoil ri taobh a'bhalla To be in the narrow coffin by the wall
H ho ro h, air fireal il Hi ho ro hi, air faireal il o
   
Bhith'n ciste chaoil ri taobh a'bhalla To be in the narrow coffin by the wall
Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho Hiurabhi hiurabhi, hi ho ro ho
Saor' ga dnadh 's ird 'ga barradh With the carpenter closing it and the hammer sealing it
H ho ro h, air fireal il Hi ho ro hi, air faireal il o
