Mo chrdhghal bochd Sad and heartsore my weeping
Mar a tha mi nochd For I find myself tonight
'S mi gun tmh gun fhios gun sunnd Without rest, without peace, without cheer
Mo chrdhghal bochd Sad and heartsore my weeping
Mar a tha mi nochd For I find myself tonight
'S mi gun tmh gun fhios gun sunnd Without rest, without peace, without cheer
   
Gun srd ri stth With no will for anything that profits
Gun dil ri bhith sln Without hope to be well
Chaidh mo shgradh gu brth air chl My joy is vanished forever more
Gun srd ri stth With no will for anything that profits
Gun dil ri bhith sln Without hope to be well
Chaidh mo shgradh gu brth air chl My joy is vanished forever more
   
Mu dheagh mhac Ruairidh nan long Because of grief for the son of Roderick of the ships
Lmh a libhrigadh bhonn His a hand to lavish wealth
'S a bha measail air fonn luchd ciil And who esteemed the minstrels' song
Mu dheagh mhac Ruairidh nan long Because of grief for the son of Roderick of the ships
Lmh a libhrigadh bhonn His a hand to lavish wealth
'S a bha measail air fonn luchd ciil And who esteemed the minstrels' song

'S e bhith smuaineachadh ort It is thinking of you
A chridh mi am chorp That has tortured my body
Is a chnmh na roisg bho m' shil And wasted the lashes from my eyes
   
Mi ri smuaintean bochd truagh Thinking sadly and sorrowfully
Is ri iomradh baoth buan And ever vainly recalling
'S mi gad ionndrainn-sa bhuam, 's tu b'fhi And longing for you as well you deserved
Mi ri smuaintean bochd truagh Thinking sadly and sorrowfully
Is ri iomradh baoth buan And ever vainly recalling
'S mi gad ionndrainn-sa bhuam, 's tu b'fhi And longing for you as well you deserved
   
Deagh shealgair am frth Rare hunter in a forest
Bha gun cheilg do thaigh rgh You were without guile towards the royal house
Agus seirbheisach dileas crin And a loyal servant of the crown

Tha do chinneadh fo ghruaim Your kindred are in gloom
'S gach aon fhine mun cuairt As are those of every name around

Lmh churanta chruaidh Yours a hand heroic and hardy
Ann an iomairt 's gach buaidh In contest and every victory
Chan uarrainn domh d'uaisle, ruin Your nobility, dear one, is no longer my support

Do thaigh talla fo ghruaim Your mansion is in gloom
'S e gun aighear gun uaill Without mirth, without pomp
