Mingulay boat song   


Hill you ho, boys, let her go, boys;
Bring her head round, now all together.
Hill you ho, boys, let her go, boys;
Sailing home, home to Mingulay.

What care we, to wide the Minch is?
What care we, for wind and weather?
Let her go, boys, every inch is
Wearing home, home to Mingulay


Dolphins springing, children singing                                           Sun is listening on the water                                                         Haul her round boys and we'll soon be                                    Once again home in Mingulay


Wives are waiting by the harbour
Wives been waiting since break o-day-o
Wives been waiting by the harbour                                                   Till the sun sets on mingulay
