Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sist: Chorus:
I hiraibh, i hiraibh I hiraibh, i hiraibh
I hiraibh o gheallaidh I hiraibh o gheallaidh
I hiraibh ile I hiraibh ile
Rinn thu eudail mo mhealladh You, my beloved, deceived me
   
Sann an toiseach a' bhta It's at the prow of the boat
Tha mo ghrdh dha na fearaibh That my beloved of men is
Sil chorrach ghorm linta Eyes passionate blue and satiated
Gruaidh mhn-dhearg, beul tana Cheeks soft-red, slim mouth
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
   
Thoir an t-soraidh seo bhuamsa Bear this greeting from me
Gu Sliabh nan Tri Seallaidh To the Plain of the Three Visions
Chun an ganaich chiataich To the elegant young man
Tha 'n iar air na Gallaibh Who is west of the Lowlands
   
Gura mis' tha gu brnach How dejected I am
'S mo shilean sor lasadh And my eyes verily shining
Ged nach fhaic mi ri m' bhe thu Although I may not see you in my lifetime
Guma sln thig thu dhachaigh May you return home safely
   
(Sist) (Chorus)
