I have funds tae buy me whiskey
Monie funds tae call my ain
But if I should get to fu' o' water
Wha's the man that would carry me hame?

And if I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hou the deuce would I win Hame?
If I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hi-way duggie would find me in the Isla stream.

Ilka day I cross that water
Aye she's brackent wi' the sea
But after hours o' ale-hous laughter
Daurk an' still she waits on me.

And if I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hou the deuce would I win Hame?
If I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hi-way duggie would find me in the Isla stream.

Like the fisher's line that's brawken
Leaves the salmon tae the swell
Monie's the nicht ye'll fan' me souken
But ye brak the line yersel.

And if I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hou the deuce would I win Hame?
If I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hi-way duggie would find me in the Isla stream.

Aa' my days I've lived the quarter
Baud and bonnie fine stuff I've seen
But should I droun in your water
Hi-way duggie would find me in the Isla Stream.

And if I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hou the deuce would I win Hame?
If I be drounk in the Isla Waters
Hi-way duggie would find me in the Isla stream.
