Lyrics: English Translation:
   
Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Seinneam cli nam fear r I sing the praises of the new men
Gillean glun-gheal nam breacan White-kneed lads of the tartan
Feileadh beag os cionn nan glun Their kilts above the knee
Eideadh sunndach nan gaisgeach Hearty uniform of the heroes
   
Seinneam cli na dh'fhag Port-righ I sing the praises of those that left Portree
Fo'n cuid poban is bhreacan With their bagpipes and tartan
Leam bu mhiann a bhi nan cul I would like to be behind them
Miann mo shuil bhi gam faicinn Joy of my eyes to see them
   
Seinneam cli na dh' fhalbh a Sleibht' I sing the praises of those that left Sleat
Gillean treun nach robh meata Brave lads who were not timid
Chaidh a dhion an crun 's an tr Who went to defend crown and country
Bho'n a mhltear gun cheartas From the destructor without justice
   
'S bi an cli 'ga sheinn gu brth Their fame will be sung forever
Fhad's bhios tonn air trigh no cladach As long as the waves strike a beach or shore
Fhad's bhios grian an aird na speur As long as the sun is high in the heavens
Mairidh spis do na gaisgich There will be respect for the heroes
   
(Sist 2x) (Chorus 2x)
