Man your boats, leave the Whale
What care we for calm or gale?
Aye, tak' a drink as lang's ye can:
Brandy's guid amang het ale;
Heave ya ho, and away we go
Heave ya ho, and away-oh!
Heave ya ho, and away we go
Heave ya ho, and away-oh!

Wave tae yer lass: they're a' the same
Mag an' Meg and Jeannie and Jane.
Oh how they laugh when we hae fish,
But oh how they girn when we hae nane;
Heave ya ho, and away we go.

Lady Twynfords lang tails
Comin' doon the brae-oh
She maun get a' the cream o' the milk
An' we maun get the whey-oh;
Heave ya ho, and away we go.

What care we for wind or storm?
What care we for gale-oh?
Gin we maun haul a' the creel ower the side
We'll drink the milk o' the Whale-oh;
Heave ya ho, and away we go.
