Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing Onward! the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King

Over the sea to Skye Loud the wind howls, loud the waves roar Thunderclaps rend the air Baffled, our foes stand on the shore Follow they will not dare Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing Onward! the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye Many's the lad fought on that day Well the claymore did wield When the night came, silently lain Dead on Culloden field Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing Onward! the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye Though the waves leap, soft will ye sleep Ocean's a royal bed Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep Watch by your weary head Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing Onward! the sailors cry Carry the lad that's born to be King Over the sea to Skye
