SŔist: Chorus (after each verse):
'S toigh leam cruinneag dhonn nam bˇ I love the brown-haired milkmaid
Shuibhlainn leat troimh choill nan cn˛ I would traverse the hazel-wood with you
'S toigh leam cruinneag dhonn nam bˇ I love the brown-haired milkmaid
   
'S toigh leam cruinneag dhonn na h-Órigh I love the brown-haired lass from the shieling
Dh'an tug mi mo ghrÓdh 's mi ˛g To whom I pledged my love as a youth
   
'S toigh leam banarach na buaile I love the milkmaid from the fold
Buain a'fhraoich gu dath a' chl˛ Plucking the heather to dye the cloth
   
Shi¨bhlainn leat troimh choill a' bharraich I would walk through the birch-forest with you
Ged bhiodh cÓch a fanaid ˛irnn Though the others would be mocking us
   
Ri cur a' chrodh-laoigh dh'an innis When putting the cows to pasture
Dh'aithnichinn a' tighinn do che˛l I would recognize you by your singing
   
'S toigh leam cruinneag dhonn nam bˇ... I love the brown-haired milkmaid...
