Ruidhlidh na coilich dhubha The blackcocks would reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan And the ducks would dance
Ruidhlidh na coilich dhubha The blackcocks would reel
Air a' bhruthach bhidheach On the beautiful bank
Ruidhlidh na coilich dhubha The blackcocks would reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan And the ducks would dance
Ruidhlidh na coilich dhubha The blackcocks would reel
Air a' bhruthach bhidheach On the beautiful bank
   
Gheibh thu aran agus m You will get bread and butter
'S cise na banaraich And cheese from the dairymaid
Gheibh thu aran agus m You will get bread and butter
Agus bainne bh ann And cow's milk there
Gheibh thu aran agus m You will get bread and butter
'S cise na banaraich And cheese from the dairymaid
Gheibh thu aran agus m You will get bread and butter
Agus bainne bh ann And cow's milk there
