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 must blame
Ye shall hear, ye shall hear
Your doctrines I must blame, ye shall hear

What's a-right and what is wrong
By the law, by the law
What's a-right and what is wrong by the law?

What's a-right and 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

What makes heroic strife
Famed afar, famed afar
What makes heroic strife famed afar?

What makes heroic strife
To wet the assassin's knife
Or haunt a parent's life
With bloody war, bloody war
Or haunt a parent's life with bloody war?

So let your schemes alone
In the state, in the state
Aye, let your schemes alone in the state

Let your schemes alone
Adore the rising sun
And leave a man alone
To his fate, to his fate
Aye, 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
Your doctrines I must blame
Ye shall hear, ye shall hear
Your doctrines I must blame, ye shall hear

Ye Jacobites by name
Lend an ear, lend an ear
Ye Jacobites by name, lend an ear
