'Tha mi dol a Dheanamh Banais' is a traditional Gaelic children's song. It is arranged and sung here by Christina Stewart, a performer and teacher of traditional Scottish songs.

Tha mi dol dheanamh banais, tha mis dol a phosadh (x3)
E i o u, nuair a thig mo dhochas

Refrain
Hi iodail i odail idil odail idil oi ri (x3)
Gheo am sa iodail am sa iodail idil oi ri

Tha mi dol dheanamh banais, tha mis dol a reiteach (x3)
E i o u nuair a thig mi cheud ghaol

The English translated as:

I am going to have a wedding, I am going to get married (x3)
When the one I hope for comes

I am going to have a wedding, I am going to have an engagement party (x3)
When my first love comes

The song is included in Christina Stewart's CD, 'Bairn's Kist', a collection of traditional Scottish songs designed to encourage adults to sing, play and connect with young children.
