NUAIR A CHÌ THU CAILEAG BHÒIDHEACH (When you see a pretty girl). Scottish, Air. Similarities to the melody of the Robert Burns' song "There'll never be peace 'til Jamie comes hame." The Gaelic words to the begin:

Nuair a chì thu caileag bhòidheach
Bidh thu 'n tòir orr' airson oidhch'
'S iomadh cron tha 'n cois an t-seòrsa
Gun thu bhi eòlach air an cainnt
Ach innse mi mar ghaol na h-òige
Mura bheil mo chòmhradh meallt
Théid e seachad mar na sgòthan
'S mar na neòil tha os ar cionn

'S mar na neòil tha os ar cionn
'S mar na neòil tha os ar cionn
Théid e seachad mar na sgòthan
'S mar na neòil tha os ar cionn

Whenever you see a pretty young girl
You'll be in pursuit of her for one night
There's much pain connected with her like
Without being familiar with her talk
But I shall tell you of the love of the young
Unless I'm mistaken
It passes like the clouds
And the stars above

And the stars above
And the stars above
It passes like the clouds
And the stars above.
