M'eudail air do shilean donna

Sist: Chorus:
M' eudail air do shilean donna I love your brown eyes
Air do shilean 's air do bhodhaig Your eyes and your shape
M' eudail air do shilean donna I love your brown eyes
'S air do bhodhaig bhidhich And your comely shape
   
Gar am faighinn idir thu If only I were to get you
Gar am faighinn fhn thu If only I were to get you to myself
Gar am faighinn idir thu If only I were to get you
Na'n danadh tu mo dhcheall If you would allow me to persevere
   
B' fharr leam fhn na mle not' I wish more than a thousand pounds
B' fharr leam fhn na'n daoimean I wish more than diamonds
B' fharr leam fhn na mle not' I wish more than a thousand pounds
Gur e nochd anoidhche That tonight were the night
   
B' fharr leam fhn gu robh thu agam I wish you were mine
B' fharr leam fhn na'n t-r e I wish it more than gold
B' fharr leam fhn gu robh thu agam I wish you were mine
'S e do mhais a len mi Your beauty has wounded me
