Skye Boat Song
(source: "Our Chalet Songbook", Our Chalet Committee, 1981.)


Speed, bonnie boat, like a bird on the wing.
Onward! the sailors cry.
Carry the lad that's born to be king
Over the sea to Skye.
Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclouds rend the air.
Baffled, our foes stand on the shore.
Follow, they will not dare.

Though the waves leap, soft shall ye sleep,
Ocean's a royal bed.
Rocked in the deep, Flora will keep
Watch by your weary head.
