Rachainn a shuiridh' air Oighrig

Rachainn a shuiridh' air Oighrig I would go courting Oighrig
Shgradh ris a' mhaighdinn To make love to the maiden
Rachainn a shireadh do chaoimhneis I would go seeking your kindness
Ged bhiodh an oidhche redht' ann Though the night be freezing
Rachainn a shuiridh' air Oighrig I would go courting Oighrig
Shgradh ris a' mhaighdinn To make love to the maiden
Rachainn a shireadh do chaoimhneis I would go seeking your kindness
Ged bhiodh an oidhche redht' ann Though the night be freezing
   
'S beag orm rudan a ch mi How little do I like what I see
Mnathan ag ithe 's ag innse Women who eat and then tell tales
'S athaiseach siud air mo mhnaoi-sa That came easily to my woman
Thug iad an t-im gl g ghith They gave her the butter while still young
'S beag orm rudan a ch mi How little do I like what I see
Mnathan ag ithe 's ag innse Women who eat and then tell tales
'S athaiseach siud air mo mhnaoi-sa That came easily to my woman
Thug iad an t-im gl g ghith They gave her the butter while still young
