Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Ruidhleadh mo nighean donn My brown-haired girl would dance a reel
Bha an raoir an cul a bhearraidh Behind the ridge last night
Ruidhleadh mo nighean donn My brown-haired girl would dance a reel
Bha an cul a ghearraidh Behind the garden
Ruidhleadh mo nighean donn My brown-haired girl would dance a reel
Bha an raoir an cul a bhearraidh Behind the ridge last night
Faragin mo nighean donn Bravo, my brown-haired girl
Bha an cul a ghearraidh Behind the garden
   
Faragin mo nighean donn Bravo, my brown-haired girl
Bha an raoir an cul a bhearraidh Behind the ridge last night
Faragin mo nighean donn Bravo, my brown-haired girl
