An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
A' chuthag sa choill' 's an oidhche tighinn, o thà.

O thà o thà o thà o hì
O thà o thà o thà o hì
O thà o thà o thà o hi
'S ann a' tiodhlacadh caillich sna Hearadh bha mi.

An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
A' chuthag sa choill' 's an oidhche tighinn, o thà.

O thà o thà o thà o hì
O thà o thà o thà o hì
O thà o thà o thà o hì
'S ann a-muigh air a' bhuailidh dh'fhàs am buachaille tinn, o thà.

An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
An cluinn, an cluinn, an cluinn thu Iain
A' chuthag sa choill' 's an oidhche tighinn, o thà.
