Haoidh o haoidh o-ho Haoidh o a hi u bho Haoidh o haidh o-ho An cuala sibh mun mhaighdeann chitich Air an tug Niall Bn an iginn Air taobh beinne ri latha grineadh 'S truagh a rgh nach b'e mi fhin i 'S mi nach danadh glaodh no ughach Cha srcainn brollach a lineadh Na srcadh gu fuaghlainn fhin i Le snthaid bhig 's le snth gl gheal 'S nighinn ann an sruthan slibh i 'S truagh gun mise 's an t-g gasda Gun duin' air bith bhith nar faisge Thigeamaid gu cliteach dhachaidh Mar gum psamaid o 'n altair
Translation into English
Haoidh o Haoidh o haoidh o-ho Haoidh o a hi u bho Haoidh o haidh o-ho Did you hear about the beautiful maiden The one that Niall Bn violated At the mountain-side on a sunny day I wish it had been me I wouldn't have torn his shirt front And if I had I, myself, would have sown it WIth a small needle and fine white thread And I'd wash it in the mountain stream Tis a pity that I wasn't with the handsome young man Without a soul near us We would proudly return home As if married from the altar
