Transcription

Hurabhi hurabhi hao ha roha
Hurabhi hurabhi hao ha roha
Chuala mi do ghlaodh sa bhruthaich
Hì o bha hao air fair al ail ò

Ged a chuala cha d' chuir umhail
Hì o bha hao air fair al ail ò

Gus an cualas guth an fhithich
Hì o bha hao air fair al ail ò

Hurabhi hurabhi hao ha roha
Hurabhi hurabhi hao ha roha
Fuil do chuim san fhraoch a' sruthadh
Hì o bha hao air fair al ail ò
