Do a YouTube search for "puirt a beul", there are a lot of interpretations to choose from.

I liked the two young girls posted by "lemonjenny", lots of enthusiasm and vim - very much like what you'd hear in an informal setting in Scotland. And they include the full lyrics with a translation. It's also worth looking at the versions where it's used to accompany dancing (step or formation).
