the King was pursued                    bha an to\ir air an Ri\gh
exceedingly beautiful                   gu maith bo\idheach
they were making much of each other     bha iad fi\or mho/r aig a che\ile
what has come over you?                 ciod e tha\inig ort?
there wasn't anything wrong with her    cha robh ni sam bith cearr oirre
how things stood                        mar a bha a' chu\is
end of the house                        ceann an taighe
they seized him                         rug iad air
... if it were a girl                   nam bu nighean a bhiodh ann
you are the one                         is tu a h-aon
thinking of going there                 smaointeachadh air dol ann
you may be certain                      faodaidh tu bhi cinnteach
he will be all for killing you          bidh e airson do mharbhadh
in any case                             co-dhiubh
he turned furiously to him              thug e tionndadh garbh air
he was passing by the land              bha a dol seachad air fearann
what are they but children?             de th'annta ach clann?
I never saw a Scot who didn't like      chan fhaca mi Albannach riamh nach
   to drink                                robh ris an deoch
as if it were...                        mar gum b'e...
there is no sign of it                  chan eil sgeul air sin
to whom the creatures would be          co\ ris a bhiodh na creutairean
   similar                                 coltach
she committed suicide                   chuir i as dhi fhe/in
without her                             as a h-aonais
a friend would remind him               chuimhneachadh caraid dha
closer to him than the world was        na b'fhaisge air na bha an saoghal
useless                                 gun fheum
though it will take years               ged a bheir e bliadhnachan mo/ra
I will not be in need                   cha bhi mi ann an di\th
he makes me lie down                    bheir e orm laighe si\os
next to still waters                    la\imh ri uisgeachan ciu\ine
my cup is overflowing                   tha mo chupan a' cur thairis
all the days of my life                 uile la\ithean mo bheatha
as long as I live                       fad mo la\ithean
all your enemies                        do naimhdean uile
you will make them turn their back      bheir thu orra an cu\l a
                                           thionndadh
I will trust in                         earbaidh mi as
I am a worm, and not a man              is cnuimh mise, agus cha duine
all of those who see me                 iad uile a chi\ mi
they will mock me                       ni\ iad ga\ire-fanaid orm
he trusted in it                        chuir e a dho\igh ann
he would deliver him                    fuasgladh e air
trouble is close to me                  tha a\mhghar dlu\th dhomh
my tongue is sticking to my jaw         tha mo theanga a' leantainn ri'm
                                           ghial
they drew lots                          thilg iad crannchur
