Vorspiel

1. What care we, boys, how wide the minch is? / What care we boys, for windy weather? / Let her go boys! Every inch is / closer homeward to Mingulay.

Heel ya ho, boys, let her go, boys. / heave her head round into the weather. / Heel ya ho, boys, let her go, boys. / Sailing home, home to Mingulay.

2. Skye or Lewis, Mull or Uist / Tiree, Coll or Vatersay-O / none can call us like our island / our dear_own island of Mingulay.

Heel ya ho, boys, ...

3. Wives are waiting at the pierhead / looking seawards from the heather. / Swing her head round, and we will anchor / 'ere the sun sets on Mingulay.

Heel ya ho, boys, ...

4. Wifes are waiting by the harbour, / they've been waiting since break of day-O / our bairns are playing on hills of heather / above the harbour of Mingulay.
