Gheibh thu caoraich, gheibh thu crodh
Gheibh thu caoraich, gheibh thu crodh
Gheibh thu caoraich, gheibh thu crodh
Gheibh thu buaile fearainn, gheibh.

Maraich' thu ma bhios tu beò
Maraich' thu ma bhios tu beò
Maraich' thu ma bhios tu beò
'S cha chuir am muir ort, a sheòid.

Maraich' thu ma bhios tu buan
Maraich' thu ma bhios tu buan
Maraich' thu ma bhios tu buan
'S cha chuir am muir ort, a luaidh.

Gheibh thu caoraich, gheibh thu crodh
Gheibh thu caoraich, gheibh thu crodh
Gheibh thu caoraich, gheibh thu crodh
Gheibh thu buaile fearainn, gheibh.
