Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam (Bring Alan over)

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.

Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam

Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam, Ailean 'ugam, Ailean agam
Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam, seatadh e an t-ùrlar
(a rithist)

Ailean àluinn a' tighinn mac a' bhàillidh a Uibhist
Ailean àluinn a' tighinn, tighinn air an fhairge
(a rithist)

Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam, Ailean 'ugam, Ailean agam
Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam, seatadh e an t-ùrlar
(a rithist)

Ceann ruadh air a ghille, buidhe ruadh air a ghille
Ceann ruadh air a ghille mar a bh' air a' mhàthair
(a rithist)

Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam, Ailean 'ugam, Ailean agam
Thoir a nall Ailean 'ugam, seatadh e an t-ùrlar
(a rithist)

Bring Alan over

Bring Alan over so that he can prepare the floor

Lovely Alan the estate manager's son from Uist
Is on his way across the sea

The boy is red-haired, reddish-gold hair
just like his mother
