I ud ud eatharam

LÓrach do thacaidean The trace of your tackets
LÓrach do chruidean The trace of your hard boots
LÓrach do bhr˛gan The trace of your shoes
Am b˛rd Loch na Muilne On the plank at the Mill Loch
   
SŔist: Chorus:
I ud ud eatharam I ud ud eatharam
I ud ud aoiream I ud ud aoiream
I ud ud eatharam I ud ud eatharam
Chunna mise raoir thu I saw you last night
   
Cha b'e br˛gan tacaideach You shouldn't have been wearing tackety boots
Le pleitichean is cruidhean With patches and hard soles
Bu ch˛ir a bhith ma d' chasan On your feet
Ma 's e caithris bha nad inntinn If you had a "night visit" in mind
   
Carson a bha thu spadsearsachd Why were you stravaiging
Timchioll tigh na muilne Around the Mill House?
Robh thu'n d¨il gu faigheadh tu Did you think you'd get to
Gu nighean bhuidhe mhuilleir? The miller's fair-haired daughter?
   
Cha ghabh i idir, idir, thu She won't have you at all, at all
Cha dŔan i caithris oidhch' leat She won't entertain you on a "night visit"
Gu'n cuir thu bhuat na bloidsearan Until you get rid of those clumsy boots
'S gu faigh thu br˛gan foidhne And get finer footwear
