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
Your doctrines I maun (must)blame, you will hear, you
Will hear
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear

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
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear, you will
Hear
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear

What is right, what is wrong, by the law, by the law
What is right, and what is wrong, by the law
What is right, what is wrong
The weak arm and the strong
The short sword and the long, for to draw, for to draw
The short sword and the long, for to draw

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
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear, you will
Hear
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear

What makes heroic strife, famed afar, famed afar
What makes heroic strife, famed afar
What makes heroic strife
To whet th' assassin's knife
And haunt a Parent's life, wi' bloody war, wi' bloody
War
And haunt a parent's life, wi' bloody war

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
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear, you will
Hear
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear

So let your schemes alone, in the state, in the state
Let your schemes alone, in the state
Let your schemes alone
Adore the rising sun
And leave a man undone to his fate, to his fate
And leave a man undone 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
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear, you will
Hear
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear

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
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear, you will
Hear
Your doctrines I maun blame, you will hear
