Thoir a nall Ailean thugam

Cha teid Fionnlagh a dh'Eige Finlay won't go to Eigg
Ged nach psda e feasda Although he's not married yet
Cha teid Fionnladh a dh'Eige Finlay won't go to Eigg
Dh'Eige cha teid Fionnlagh To Eigg Finlay won't go
Cha teid Fionnlagh a dh'Eige Finlay won't go to Eigg
Ged nach psda e feasda Although he's not married yet
Cha teid Fionnladh a dh'Eige Finlay won't go to Eigg
Dh'Eige cha teid Fionnlagh To Eigg Finlay won't go
   
Sist: Chorus:
Thoir a nall Ailean thugam Bring Allan over to me
Ailean thugam, Ailean thugam To me, to me
Thoir a nall Ailean thugam Bring Allan over to me
Seatadh e'n t-urlar He would set the floor
Thoir a nall Ailean thugam Bring Allan over to me
Ailean thugam, Ailean thugam To me, to me
Thoir a nall Ailean thugam Bring Allan over to me
Seatadh e'n t-urlar He would set the floor
   
Ceann ruadh air a nighean The girl has red hair
Buidhe ruadh air a nighean The girl has yellow-red hair
Ceann ruadh air a nighean The girl has red hair
Mar a bh'air a mthair Just like her mother
Ceann ruadh air a nighean The girl has red hair
Buidhe ruadh air a nighean The girl has yellow-red hair
Ceann ruadh air a nighean The girl has red hair
Mar a bh'air a mthair Just like her mother

Dmhnall lainn a' tighinn Handsome Donald on his way
Tighearna na luirgne The long-legged Earl
