Fal u hil o hilling is o Fal u hil o hilling is o
Fal u hil o ho ro eile Fal u hil o ho ro eile
   
Is moch an diugh a rinn mi gluasad Early today I set out
Dhrich mi mach a' bheinn ghruamach I climbed the forbidden mountain

Fal u hil o ho ro eile Fal u hil o ho ro eile
Fal u hil o hilling is o Fal u hil o hilling is o
Fal u hil o ho ro eile Fal u hil o ho ro eile
   
Dhrich mi mach a' bheinn ghruamach I climbed the forbidden mountain
Shuidh mi air cnoc an fhraoich uaine I sat on a knoll of green heather
   
Shuidh mi air cnoc an fhraoich uaine I sat on a knoll of green heather
Sil dhan tug mi air mo ghualainn As I glanced over my shoulder
   
Sil dhan tug mi air mo ghualainn As I glanced over my shoulder
Chunnaic mi tighinn na h-uaislean I saw the noblemen coming
   
Chunnaic mi tighinn na h-uaislean I saw the noblemen coming
Air choltais Raghaill 'is Ruaraidh Two who looked like Ronald and Roderick
   
Air choltais Raghaill 'is Ruaraidh Two who looked like Ronald and Roderick
Dh'aithnich mi nach robh luaidh ann I realized that my love was not among them
   
Dh'aithnich mi nach robh luaidh ann I realized that my love was not among them
Is math tha fios 'am d chm bhuam thu Well do I know what kept you from me
   
Is math tha fios 'am d chm bhuam thu Well do I know what kept you from me
'S t eile aig baile 'gad bhuaireadh Another woman in the village winning you
   
'S t eile aig baile 'gad bhuaireadh Another woman in the village winning you
'On is ise 's truime buaile She's the one with the best stock fold
   
'On is ise 's truime buaile She's the one with the best stock fold
'S mise as cirdich dha na h-uaislean And I the one with the noble blood
