This BBC site wants to teach you a folksong in Gaelic:


Some of the words are:

'S tric a bha mi fhìn 's mo leannan,
Anns a' ghleannan cheòthar,
'G èisteachd còisir bhinn an doire ,
Seinn sa choille dhòmhail

This means, in the BBC translation,

Often, my love and I,
Were in the misty glens,
Listening to the sweet choir of the grove,
Singing in the corpulent forest.

"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
