Chorus (after each verse):
Gur h-e mo ghille dubh-dhonn (He is my dark brown lad)
Gur tщ mo chuilean runach (You are my beloved darling)
Gur h-e mo ghille dubh-dhonn (He is my dark brown lad)

San a'raoir nach d'fhuair mi'n cadal (It was last night I couldn't sleep)
Bha mм fad 'nam dщsgadh (I was awake for a long time)

Smaointin air an fhear a thrиig mi (Thinking of the man that forsook me)
's nach d'rinn feum dha chumhtan (Who didn't keep his promise)

He's gone, he's gone, my lover's gone
And left me broken hearted

Chuala mi gun d'rinn thщ Dhomhnaill (I heard, Donald)
Posadh ann an Niubhraidh (That you got married in Newry)

Domhnall Donn the people say
You've married down in Newry

B'fhearr leam fhin a bheith riut posda (I would prefer to be married to you)
Na cuid уare a Phrionnsa (Than to have the Prince's gold)

I would rather have you, Donald
Than the gold of prince's

Och nam och mar tha mi nochd (Alas how I am tonight)
Trom osnaidh 's mi gad iondrainn (Sighing heavily as I long for you)
