C ni mire rium? Who will flirt with me?

C ni e mur dian na gillean e? Who'll do that unless the young men will?
   
Latha dhomh 's mi falbh nam fireachan One day as I walked the mountain moors
   
Thachair orm a' ghruagach chinnealta A kindly lass I encountered there
   
Sgian beag na laimh 's i buain biolaire A little knife in her hand, plucking watercress
   
'S i buain cointean an cois na linneadh ud Plucking flowers by yon river pool
   
Theann mi null is fhuair mi bruidhinn rith' I went over and got to talk with her
   
'S dh'fhoighnich mi gu de bu chinneadh dhi I asked what clan she belonged to
   
'S thuirt i riumsa, "Tha bann-Siosalach" She said to me, "I'm a Chisolm girl"
   
Thuirt mi rith' gum b'e mo chinneadh e I said to her I was a Chisolm, too
   
Thuirt i rium, "Cha bhi mo thuras riut She said to me, "I'll have nothing to do with you
   
Gura Leathanach mo roghainn-sa A MacLean is my preference
   
Gun dian Domhnallach mo choinneachadh" And a MacDonald will be meeting me"
