Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Latha dhomh 's mi buain a choirce One day while reaping oats
Gherr mi'm beum 's cha robh e socair I cut a handful of corn, and it was not easy
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
H r na ho ri ri H r na ho ri ri
Hi ri ri ri ho ro eile Hi ri ri ri ho ro eile
H r na ho ri ri H r na ho ri ri
   
Gherr mi'm beum 's cha robh e socair I cut a handful of corn, and it was not easy
Shuidh mi air uachdair a'ghoirtein I sat by the edge of the cornfield
   
Shuidh mi air uachdair a'ghoirtein I sat by the edge of the cornfield
Dh'fheuch am faicinn fear do choltais To see if I could see one like you
   
Dh'fheuch am faicinn fear do choltais To see if I could see one like you
Fear chil duinn 's nan gruaidhean dosrach The one with brown locks and plummy cheeks
   
Fhaoileag bheag a shnmhas an cala Little seagull who can swim the harbor
Beir mo shoraidh bhuam gu m' leannan Take my respects from me to my lover
