O gur duine truagh mi

O gur duine truagh mi nach eil agaibh truas rium Oh what a poor soul I am, don't you pity me
'S miosa na gach buaireadh a bhuaileas mac mÓthar I suffer the worst troubles that can hit human kind
Chuir e nam che˛ mi 's gann is duine be˛ mi It has confused me, I am barely alive
Mulachan gun d˛igh mi is sp˛rs air mo shÓilleadh I am a poor soul with no wealth, too much fun has pickled me
   
Co-dhi¨ bhithinn togarrach, co-dhi¨ bhithinn de˛nach Whether I fancy, whether I desire
Co-dhi¨ bhithinn togarrach air Raonaid no Se˛naid Whether I fancy Rachel or Janet
A Rýgh nach robh fios agam gu cinnteach is de˛nach Lord, if only I knew surely and properly
'S mi bhiodh sgiobalta air m' fhirinn ga p˛sadh I would be really quick to marry her
