Fhir a dh' ith am bonnach mr

Fhir a dh' ith am bonnach mr The one who ate the big bannock
Chunna mis' e 's cha bu bheag e I saw him and he was not small
Fhir a dh' ith am bonnach mr The one who ate the big bannock
'S a leth-chairteal annlain And half a quarter of the provisions
Fhir a dh' ith am bonnach mr The one who ate the big bannock
Chunna mis' e 's cha bu bheag e I saw him and he was not small
Fhir a dh' ith am bonnach mr The one who ate the big bannock
'S a leth-chairteal annlain And half a quarter of the provisions
   
Ma bha 's gun robh tuilleadh ann If there was more
Gun robh peice mine ann There was a peck of meal there
'S gur h-i t Mhuinntir Mhingenis And it was a woman from Minginish
A dh' fhuin gu tioram teann e Who baked it dry and firm
Ma bha 's gun robh tuilleadh ann If there was more
Gun robh peice mine ann There was a peck of meal there
'S gur h-i t Mhuinntir Mhingenis And it was a woman from Minginish
A dh' fhuin gu tioram teann e Who baked it dry and firm
