Nighean na cailliche crotaiche crbaich

Nighean na cailliche crotaiche, crbaich The grumpy, hump-backed lame old wife's daughter
Thionndadh i cl is throideadh i rium Would turn her back to me and scold
Bhreabadh i casan mu seach air an lar She would stamp her feet, turn about on the floor
Thionndadh i cl is throideadh i rium She'd turn her back on me and scold
Nighean na cailliche crotaiche, crbaich The grumpy, hump-backed lame old wife's daughter
Thionndadh i cl is throideadh i rium Would turn her back to me and scold
Bhreabadh i casan mu seach air an lar She would stamp her feet, turn about on the floor
Thionndadh i cl is throideadh i rium She'd turn her back on me and scold
   
Thionndadh i claibh, bhreabadh i 'n t-lar She'd turn her back to me and stamp the floor
Thionndadh i claibh 's throideadh i rium She'd turn her back to me and scold me
Thionndadh i claibh, bhreabadh i 'n t-lar She'd turn her back to me and stamp the floor
Thionndadh i claibh 's throideadh i rium She'd turn her back to me and scold me
Thionndadh i claibh, bhreabadh i 'n t-lar She'd turn her back to me and stamp the floor
Thionndadh i claibh 's throideadh i rium She'd turn her back to me and scold me
O nighean na cailliche 's miosa anns an dthaich Oh daughter of the worse old hag in the land
Thionndadh i claibh 's throideadh i rium She'd turn her back to me and scold me
