W:Chorus:
W:Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear, lend an ear!
W:Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear,
W:Ye Jacobites by name, your faults I will proclaim,
W:Your doctrines I maun blame, you shall hear, you shall hear,
W:Your doctrines I maun blame, you shall hear.
W:
W:What is right, and what is wrong, by the law, by the law?
W:What is right, and what is wrang, by the law?
W:What is right, and what is Wrong? A short sword or a long,
W:A weak arm or a strong, for to draw, for to draw,
W:A weak arm or a strong, for to draw.

W:Chorus
W:
W:What makes heroic strife, famed afar, famed afar?
W:What makes heroic strife famed afar?
W:What makes heroic strife? To whet the assassin's knife,
W:And haunt a parent's life, wi' bloody war, bloody war,
W:And haunt a parent's life, wi' bloody war.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Then leave your schemes alone, in the state, in the State!
W:Then leave your schemes alone, in the State!
W:Then leave your schemes alone, adore the rising sun,
W:And leave a man undone, to his fate, to his fate!
W:And leave a man undone, to his fate!
W:
W:Chorus
