Lyrics: English Translation:
   
'S olc an obair Sleep is ill work
Do theachdairean cadal For messengers
H r agus uillearainn o horo H r agus uillearainn o horo
Bean g a' chuil chleachdaich The young wife of ringleted hair
Aig baile 'ga cradh Being laid out in the village
H ro h, aig toiseach na trghad H ro h, at the beginning of the ebb tide
   
Bean g a' chuil chleachdaich The young wife of ringleted hair
Aig baile 'ga cradh Being laid out in the village
H r agus uillearainn o horo H r agus uillearainn o horo
Maighread ni Ruairidh Mairead, daughter of Roderick
Bean shuairc an deagh ndair A fine, good-natured woman
H ro h, aig toiseach na trghad H ro h, at the beginning of the ebb tide
   
Maighread ni Ruairidh Mairead, daughter of Roderick
Bean shuairc an deagh ndair A fine, good-natured woman
H r agus uillearainn o horo H r agus uillearainn o horo
A dhanadh an t-aodach Who would make cloth
'S gum bu chaol bhiodh a' snithlean Fine would be her thread
H ro h, aig toiseach na trghad H ro h, at the beginning of the ebb tide
   
A dhanadh an t-aodach Who would make cloth
'S gum bu chaol bhiodh a' snithlean Fine would be her thread
H r agus uillearainn o horo H r agus uillearainn o horo
'S Aonghuis 'ic Iain And Angus, son of John
Bu tu cridhe na fileadh You were the heart of hospitality
H ro h, aig toiseach na trghad H ro h, at the beginning of the ebb tide
