An tèid thu bhuain mhaoraich (Will you go and gather mussels)

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

An tèid thu bhuain mhaoraich

An tèid thu bhuain mhaoraich
An tèid thu bhuain mhaoraich
An tèid thu bhuain mhaoraich
Do chaolas na h-Airde
(a rithist)

'Ghaoilein, a ghaoilein
a ghaoilein do mhàthair
'Ghaoilein, a ghaoilein
An tèid thu bhuain mhaoraich
(a rithist)

Will you go and gather mussels

Will you go and gather mussels
Will you go and gather limpets
Will you go and gather mussels
To the Ard strait

My darling, my darling
Your mother's darling
My darling, my darling
Will you go and gather limpets
