Sair fyeld hinny, sair fyeld noo
Sair fyeld hinny, sin' a' kenned thou

Aa was young and lusty aa was fair and clear
Aa was young and lusty many's a lang year

Sair fyeld hinny, sair fyeld noo
Sair fyeld hinny, sin' a kenned thou

When I was five and twenty aa could lowp a dyke
Noo a'm five and sixty aa can barely step a syke

Sair fyeld sair fyeld noo
Sair fyeld hinny, sin aa kenned thoo

Thus spoke the owld man to the oak tree
Sair fyeld is aa sin' a kend thee!

Sair fyeld hinny, sair fyeld noo
Sair fyeld hinny, sin aa kenned thoo
