Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
'S gun dhiult am bodach feur dhomh The old man refused me hay
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
Chuirinn fo mo shliosaid To put under my thigh
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
'S gun dhiult am bodach feur dhomh The old man refused me hay
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
Chuirinn fo mo shliosaid To put under my thigh
   
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
'S gun dhiult am bodach feur dhomh The old man refused me hay
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
'S gun dhiult am bodach feur dhomh The old man refused me hay
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
'S gun dhiult am bodach feur dhomh The old man refused me hay
Gun d' dhiult am bodach luideach odhar The ragged, sallow old man
A's an t-sabhail feur dhomh Refused me hay in the barn
   
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw

Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
Chuirinn fo mo shliosaid To put under my thigh
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
'S gun dhiult am bodach feur dhomh The old man refused me hay
Dhiult am bodach fodar dhomh The old man refused me straw
Chuirinn fo mo shliosaid To put under my thigh

Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha The black cocks will reel
'S dannsaidh na tunnagan The ducks will dance
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha The black cocks will reel

'S dannsaidh na tunnagan The ducks will dance
Ruidhlidh na coillich dhubha The black cocks will reel
Air a bhruthaich bhoidhich On the pretty slope

Gheibh thu aran agus im You will get bread and butter
Agus bainne bh ann And get cow's milk there
Gheibh thu aran agus im You will get bread and butter

Gheibh thu aran agus im You will get bread and butter
Agus bainne bh ann And get cow's milk there
