Dili o iodalam

Sist: Chorus:
Dili o iodalam, deur chan eil 's a' phig' agam Dili o iodalam, there's not a drop in my pitcher
Dili o iodalam, deur cha robh riamh ann Dili o iodalam, there was never a drop in it
Dili o iodalam, eil deur idir, idir ann? Dili o iodalam, is there not a single drop in my pitcher?
Dili o iodalam, deur cha robh riamh ann Dili o iodalam, there was never a drop in it
   
'Cuala sibh ma Dhmhnall Og, bh'e cir, sgiobalta? Did you hear of young Donald, he was fine and neat?
'Cuala sibh ma Dhmhnall Og, bh'e cir, bidheach? Did you hear of young Donald, he was fine and beautiful?
'Cuala sibh ma Dhmhnall Og, bh'e cir, sgiobalta? Did you hear of young Donald, he was fine and neat?
Sgiobalta bha Dmhnall Og, leis an t-seana chta Young Donald was neat indeed in his old coat
   
Nuair a thid Dmh'll ris an t-sliabh, 's fiadhaich a ruitheas e When Donald goes to the hills, he runs fiercely
Nuair a thid Dmh'll ris an t-sliabh, 's fiadhaich a dh'fhalbhas e When Donald goes to the hills, he runs wildly
Nuair a thid Dmh'll ris an t-sliabh, 's fiadhaich a ruitheas e When Donald goes to the hills, he runs fiercely
Dmh'll cho luath ris an fhiadh, agus aona bhrg air Donald as swift as the deer, with only one shoe on
