Bà i ù o hò

I learnt this lullaby from Christine Primrose in the Gaelic Song class at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye in 2008.

Bà i ù o hò

Bà i ù o hò
Bà i ù o hò
Bà i ù o hò
Bà i ò ho bà

Gheibh thu bainne bhuam
Gheibh thu bainne bhuam
Gheibh thu bainne bhuam
Chan ann fuar ach blàth

Cha bhi mise bhuat
Cha bhi mise bhuat
Cha bhi mise bhuat
Mach air uair no dhà

Caidil thusa luaidh
Caidil thusa luaidh
Caidil thusa luaidh
Is na gluais gu là

Bà i ù o hò

I'll give you milk
I'll give you milk
I'll give you milk
Not cold but warm

I won't be away from you
I won't be away from you
I won't be away from you
apart from once or twice

You sleep my love
You sleep my love
You sleep my love
and don't stir until daybreak
