What's right and what is wrong, a short sword or a long?

A weak arm or a strong for to draw, for to draw?

Ye Yacobites by name lend an ear, lend an ear. 
Ye Yacobites by name lend an ear. 
Ye Yacobites by name, your faults will proclaim 
your doctrines I must blame you shall hear, you shall hear. 
Your doctrines I must blame you shall hear.

What makes heroic strife, famed afare, famed afare. 
What makes heroic strife, famed afare. 
What makes heroic strife, to wet the assassins knife 
Or bound a parents life with bloody war, with bloody war. 
Or bound a parents life with bloody war.

Then leave your shemes alone in the state, in the state. 
Then leave your shemes alone in the state. 
Then leave your shemes alone and adore the rising sun, 
And leave a man undone to his fate, to his fate. 
And leave a man undone to his fate.


(Trad. schottisches Volkslied. Es geht zurück auf die Jacobite Risings in Scotland (1688-1746). 
Die heute bekannte Version wurde von Robert Burns 1791 niedergeschrieben.)
