Ye Jacobites by name lend an ear, lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name your faults I will proclaim
And your doctrines I must blame, and you shall hear, you shall hear
Your doctrines I must blame, you shall hear

What's right and what is wrong by the law, by the law
What's right and what is wrong by the law
What's right and what is wrong, a short sword and a long
A weak arm and a strong for to draw, for to draw
A weak arm and a strong for to draw

What makes heroic strife famed afar, famed afar?
What makes heroic strife famed afar?
What makes heroic strife, to whet the assassin's knife
Or hunt a parent's life with bloody war, bloody war
Or hunt a parent's life with bloody war

Then let your schemes alone in the state, in the state
I'll leave your schemes alone in the state
Then leave your schemes alone, adore the rising sun
And leave a man alone to his fate, to his fate
I'll leave a man alone to his fate

Ye Jacobites by name lend an ear, lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name your faults I will proclaim
And your doctrines I must blame, and you shall hear, you shall hear
Your doctrines I must blame, you shall hear
