Rubh Nan Cudaigean by Runrig (“Headland Of The Cuddy Fish”)

This song sounds amazing, and it is about fucking limpets of course, because it is a Gaelic song and that’s how Gaelic songs roll. (not fucking limpets, it is about limpets, and eating them)

lyrics:

Buain nam bairnich, nam bairnich, nam bairnich
Buain nam bairnich air creagan rubh nan cudaigean
Buain nam bairnich, nam bairnich, nam bairnich
'S goilidh sinn na bairnich 'san taigh air rubh nan cudaigean

Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Be hileam bo horam bo feitheamh air na cudaigean
Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Nach ith sibh na bairnich is ithidh mi na cudaigean

Goilidh sinn na bairnich, na bairnich, na bairnich
Goilidh sinn na bairnich ‘san taigh air rubh nan cudaigean
Goilidh sinn na bairnich, na bairnich, na bairnich
'S cagnaidh sinn na bairnich air cladach rubh nan cudaigean

Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Be hileam bo horam bo feitheamh air na cudaigean
Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Nach ith sibh na bairnich is ithidh mi na cudaigean

Cagnaidh sinn na bairnich, na bairnich, na bairnich
Cagnaidh sinn na bairnich air cladach rubh nan cudaigean
Cagnaidh sinn na bairnich, na bairnich, na bairnich
'S sgaoiligh sinn na bairnich air muir rubh nan cudaigean

Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Be hileam bo horam bo feitheamh air na cudaigean
Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Nach ith sibh na bairnich is ithidh mi na cudaigean

Sgaoiligh sinn na bairnich, na bairnich, na bairnich
Sgaoiligh sinn na bairnich air muir rubh nan cudaigean
Sgaoiligh sinn na bairnich, na bairnich, na bairnich
'Suidhidh sinn le tabh ann air creagan rubh nan cudaigean

Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Be hileam bo horam bo feitheamh air na cudaigean
Be hileam bo horam bo eirich is ithibh ith
Nach ith sibh na bairnich is ithidh mi na cudaigean

English:

Harvest of the limpets, of the limpets, of the limpets
Harvest of the limpets on the rocks of the headland of the cuddy fish
Harvest of the limpets, of the limpets, of the limpets
and we will boil the limpets in the house on the headland of the cuddy fish

Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Be hileam bo horam bo, waiting on the cuddy fish
Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Won’t you eat the limpets, and I will eat the cuddy fish

We will boil the limpets, the limpets, the limpets
We will boil the limpets in the house on the headland of the cuddy fish
We will boil the limpets, the limpets, the limpets
and we will chew the limpets on the shore of the headland of the cuddy fish

Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Be hileam bo horam bo, waiting on the cuddy fish
Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Won’t you eat the limpets, and I will eat the cuddy fish

We will chew the limpets, the limpets, the limpets
We will chew the limpets on the shore of the headland of the cuddy fish
We will chew the limpets, the limpets, the limpets
And we will scatter the limpets on the sea at the headland of the cuddy fish

Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Be hileam bo horam bo, waiting on the cuddy fish
Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Won’t you eat the limpets, and I will eat the cuddy fish

We will scatter the limpets, the limpets, the limpets
We will scatter the limpets on the sea at the headland of the cuddy fish
We will scatter the limpets, the limpets, the limpets
And we will sit with nets on the rocks of the headland of the cuddy fish

Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Be hileam bo horam bo, waiting on the cuddy fish
Be hileam bo horam bo, rise and eat, eat
Won’t you eat the limpets, and I will eat the cuddy fish
