''S ann an Ile' is a traditional Gaelic children's song. It is arranged and sung here by Christina Stewart, a performer and teacher of traditional Scottish songs.

'S ann an Ile, 'n Ile, 'n Ile
'S ann an Ile rugadh mi
'S ann an Ile, 'n Ile, 'n Ile
'S ann Ile bhoidhich (repeat)

'S ann an Ile ghuirm an fheoir
A' rugadh mi 's a' thogadh mi
'S ann an Ile ghuirm an fheoir
A' rugadh mi 's a bha mi (repeat)

'S ann an Ile bhoidhich
A' rugadh mi 's a' thogadh mi
'S ann an Ile bhoidhich
A' rugadh mi 's a bha mi (repeat)

The English translates as:

It was in Islay, Islay, Islay
It was in Islay I was born
It was in Islay, Islay, Islay
It was in beautiful Islay

It was in blue-grass Islay
I was born and I grew up
It was in blue-grass Islay
I was born and I was

It was in beautiful Islay
I was born and grew up
It was in beautiful Islay
I was born and I was

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. Christina, a native of Inverness, studied traditional song as part of her university degree. She now works with all age groups, teaching and performing traditional songs.
