Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile
Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile
Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile
Gur tu mo luaidh, ri m' bhe˛ cha cheil mi I will never conceal that you are my love
   
Nuair a bha mi m' chaileig gh˛raich When I was a foolish young girl
Thug mi gaol is grÓdh don ˛igfhear I gave my true love to the youth
Air a bheil a' phearsa bh˛idheach Of the most beautiful appearance
'S cha ghrÓdhaich mi ri m' bhe˛ fear eile And I will never love another
   
Meur as grinn' air peann a sgrýobhas Fingers most skillful when writing
'S a chuir gleus air teudan fidhle And when tuning the strings of a fiddle
'S e do che˛l a thogadh m'inntinn Your music uplifts my mind
An uair a bhithinn sgýth fo smalan When I am tired and depressed
   
Ach tha mis'an d¨il 's an d˛chas But I wish and hope
Gun tig an lÓ 's am bi sinn c˛mhla We will be together
'S ma bhios tusa dýleas dhomhsa And if you are faithful to me
Cha ghrÓdhaich mi ri m' bhe˛ fear eile I will never love another
   
Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile
Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile
Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile Hi horˇ 's na hug ˛ro eile
Gur tu mo luaidh, ri m' bhe˛ cha cheil mi I will never conceal that you are my love
   
Ae fond kiss and then we sever
Ae fareweel, alas, forever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee
 
   
Who shall say that fortune grieves him
While the star of hope she leaves him?
Me, nae cheerfu' twinkle lights me
Dark depair around benights me
 
   
I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy
Naethin' could resist my Nancy
But to see her was to love her
Love but her and love forever
 
   
Had we never loved sae kindly
Had we never loved sae blindly
Never met nor never parted
We would never be broken-hearted
 
   
Fare thee well, thou first and fairest
Fare thee well, thou best and dearest
Thine be ilka joy and treasure
Peace, enjoyment, love and pleasure
 
   
Ae fond kiss and then we sever
Ae fareweel, alas, forever
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee
