♫ Ushag veg ruy ny moanee doo,
Ny moanee doo, ny moanee doo,
Ushag veg ruy ny moanee doo,
C’raad chaddil oo riyr ‘syn oie?

 

Ushag veg ruy ny moanee doo,
Ny moanee doo, ny moanee doo,
Ushag veg ruy ny moanee doo,
C’raad chaddil oo riyr ‘syn oie?

 

Chaddil mish riyr er baare y crouw,
Baare y crouw, baare y crouw
Chaddil mish riyr er baare y crouw,
As ogh! my chadley cha treih!

 

Little red bird of the black turf ground,
Of the black turf ground, of the black turf ground,
Little red bird of the black turf ground,
Where did you sleep last night?

 

I slept last night at the ridge of the roof,
At the ridge of the roof, at the ridge of the roof,
I slept last night at the ridge of the roof,
And oh! what a wretched sleep!

 

Ushag veg ruy ny moanee doo,
Ny moanee doo, ny moanee doo,
Ushag veg ruy ny moanee doo,
C’raad chaddil oo riyr ‘syn oie?

 

Chaddil mish riyr er baare y dress,
Er baare y dress, er baare y dress,
Chaddil mish riyr er baare y dress,
As ugh! my cadley cha treih.

 

Little red bird of the black turf ground,
Of the black turf ground, of the black turf ground,
Little red bird of the black turf ground,
Where did you sleep last night?

 

I slept last night between two leaves,
Between two leaves, between two leaves,
I slept last night between two leaves,
And oh! what a peaceful sleep! ♫
