Bat' an tilleir

Tha bat' an tilleir 's cromag air The tailor's stick has a crook
Bat' an tilleir rinn e fhgail The tailor's stick that he left
Aig a mhthar 's cromag air With his with mother with a crook on it
'S e fhin gun chothrom gluasad And himself unable to move
Tha bat' an tilleir 's cromag air The tailor's stick has a crook
Bat' an tilleir rinn e fhgail The tailor's stick that he left
Aig a mhthar 's cromag air With his with mother with a crook on it
'S e fhin gun chothrom gluasad And himself unable to move
   
Chan eil c no cat agam I have neither dog nor cat
Chan eil c nach tid an cil There isn't a dog that won't go into a corner
Nuair gheibh e smid dhen bhata seo When he gets a swipe of this stick
'S cha charaich e 's cha gluais e And he will not shift or move
Chan eil c no cat agam I have neither dog nor cat
Chan eil c nach tid an cil There isn't a dog that won't go into a corner
Nuair gheibh e smid dhen bhata seo When he gets a swipe of this stick
'S cha charaich e 's cha gluais e And he will not shift or move
