O ho na ribeannan

Sist: Chorus:
O ho na ribeannan Hurray for the ribbons
Na ribeannan, na ribeannan The ribbons, the ribbons
O ho na ribeannan Hurray for the ribbons
A thug an gille ruadh dhomh The red-haired lad gave me
O ho na ribeannan Hurray for the ribbons
Na ribeannan, na ribeannan The ribbons, the ribbons
O ho na ribeannan Hurray for the ribbons
A thug an gille ruadh dhomh The red-haired lad gave me
   
Faca sibh an currac ud Did you see that bit of headgear
Am fasan th'air a mhullach aig' With all the fashionable bits on the top of it
Ach 's ann tha fth a' mhulaid aig That caused the lady that wore the hat
An t nach urrainn fhuasgladh Real pain in getting it off?
Faca sibh an currac ud Did you see that bit of headgear
Am fasan th'air a mhullach aig' With all the fashionable bits on the top of it
Ach 's ann tha fth a' mhulaid aig That caused the lady that wore the hat
An t nach urrainn fhuasgladh Real pain in getting it off?
   
H-uile t is currac oirre Every girl wears a bonnet
'S riobainn air a' mhullach aice Decorated with ribbons on the crown
'S ann tha fth a' mhulaid It is cause for misery
Aig an t nach urrainn fhuasgladh For the one who can't have this
H-uile t is currac oirre Every girl wears a bonnet
'S riobainn air a' mhullach aice Decorated with ribbons on the crown
'S ann tha fth a' mhulaid It is cause for misery
Aig an t nach urrainn fhuasgladh For the one who can't have this
   
Chuirinn cruin amaideach I would stupidly spend a crown
An riobainnean na caileagan On ribbons for the girls
Gum b'fhearr dhomh chuir san drama I'd be better spending it on drams
Na bhith teannachadh an cuailean Instead of fastening their tresses
Chuirinn cruin amaideach I would stupidly spend a crown
An riobainnean na caileagan On ribbons for the girls
Gum b'fhearr dhomh chuir san drama I'd be better spending it on drams
Na bhith teannachadh an cuailean Instead of fastening their tresses
