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

http://www.bbc.co.uk/alba/foghlam/beag_air_bheag/songs/song_02/index.shtml

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
<http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/alba/foghlam/beag_air_bheag/songs/song_02/tha_mi_sgith_verse_1.mp3>
.

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.
