Sist: Chorus (after each verse):
Dh'lainn deoch a limh mo rin I'd drink a toast from the hand of my love
Deoch-slinte le Fear an Tir A toast to the Man of the Tower
Dh'lainn deoch a limh mo rin I'd drink a toast from the hand of my love
   
Ch mi long a mach an caolas I see the ship sailing in the strait
Tha mo ghaol-sa air a stiir With my love at the helm
   
'N uair a chunnaic mi air sl i When I see her sailing
Dh'aithnich mi'n long bhn 's a cri I recognize the white ship with her crew
   
Dh'aithnich mi i fo cuid brataich' I recognize her flags
A buill-bheirte 's a cairt-iil Her rigging and her compass
   
Dh'lainn deoch-slinte mo thighearn' I'd drink a health to my chief
'N uair a dh'fhiathaich e mi null When he'd invite me to visit
   
Dh'lainn deoch-slinte Rgh Sheumais I'd drink a health to King James
M'eudail air MacDhmhnaill ghuirm My darling is the blue MacDonald
   
Dh'lainn deoch-slinte Mhic Gill-Eathain I'd drink a health to MacLean
Mac na mn a choisinn cli Son of the woman of renown
   
Sgiobair 'n a shuidh air a "haidse" The captain is sitting on the hatch
'S a limh ri sgapadh nan crn His hand is distributing crowns
   
Ged a tha mi'n seo, an Cola Though I am here in Coll
B'e mo thoil a dhol a Rm I would like to go to Rhum
   
'S rachainn as a sin do dh'Uibhist From there I'd go to Uist
B e mo luaidh tha air a luing If my wishes were granted
   
Choimhead muime chaoin nam maighdean To visit the gentle foster-mother of the maidens
Thogadh an t-oighr' air a glin Who'd take the heir on her knee
