'Abair ceol a th'agaibh an seo
O nach tig sibh comhla riumsa
Is ni sinn adhartas tron an t-saoghal
Direach cur t-ainm aig bonn a' phaipear
O cho meallt is a tha an saoghal
'Chan athairreach min an ceol agaibh ann
Chan atharraich mi na h-orain Chaidlig'
Ach chuala sinn mu dheireadh thall
Na briagan's na faclan falamh
O cho meallt is a tha an saoghal
Sibhse a tha og agus saor
Stad mas cur sibh ainm ri paipear
Is cum a mach suil 'son nan daoine mora
An saoghal fuar tha ag adhradh airgead
O cho meallt is a tha an saoghal
Gaelic Translation:
When were young and of independent spirit
We started singing in Gaelic language
Making music, writing songs
Playing in a band for our livelihood
There is much deception in the world
We left the islands of the west
And started playing throughout Scotland
And all was well
Until the big man from London appeared
There is much deception in the world
"This music has potential
Why don't you consider letting me take control
And we will make great progress in the world
Just sign your name at the bottom of this page"
There is much deception in the world
"I will not change the nature of your music
I will not alter your attitude to Gaelic language songs"
But all we heard at the end of the day
Were lies and empty words
There is much deception in the world
Now all of you that are young and of independent spirit
Take heed before you sign any contract
And keep a good look out for the `big' talkers
There is much deception in the world
