Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sheatadh cailleach ruilleadh cailleach The old woman would set, the old woman would reel
Sheatadh cailleach ris a' bhalg The old woman would set to the bag
Sheatadh cailleach Uileam Bhuidhe Blonde William's old woman would set
Ris a bhuidheann a bh'air falbh To the group who had departed
Sheatadh cailleach ruilleadh cailleach The old woman would set, the old woman would reel
Sheatadh cailleach ris a' bhalg The old woman would set to the bag
Sheatadh cailleach Uileam Bhuidhe Blonde William's old woman would set
Ris a bhuidheann a bh'air falbh To the group who had departed
   
Ruilleadh cailleach nan cailleach The old woman of old women would reel
Ri cailleach bhaile nan cailleach To the old woman from Nunton
'S gu seatadh a chailleach Hearach And the old woman from Harris would set
Ris a chaillich a bh'air falbh To the old woman who had departed
Ruilleadh cailleach nan cailleach The old woman of old women would reel
Ri cailleach bhaile nan cailleach To the old woman from Nunton

Ruilleadh cailleach Iain Bhuidhe Blonde Ian's old woman would reel
Ris a chailleach a bh'aig Uileam To the old woman who was William's
'S nuair a thug Anna dhith an curachd And when Anne removed her mutch
B'fheadar a dh'Iain Curraidh falbh Ian Currie had to depart
Ruilleadh cailleach Iain Bhuidhe Blonde Ian's old woman would reel
Ris a chailleach a bh'aig Uileam To the old woman who was William's
'S nuair a thug Anna dhith an curachd And when Anne removed her mutch
