Oh ! our sodger lads look'd braw, look'd braw, Wi' their tartans, kilts, an' a', an' a*, Wi' their bonnets, an' feathers, an' glitt'ring gear, An' pibrochs sounding sweet an' clear. Will they a' return to their ain dear glen ? Will they a' return—our Hieland men? Second-sighted Sandy look'd fu' wae, And mothers grat when they march'd awa'.
Wi' a hundred pipers an' a', an' a', Wi' a hundred pipers an* a', an' a' ; But they'll up an' gie 'em a blaw, a blaw, Wi* a hundred pipers an' a', an' a'.

Oh wha is foremaist o' a', o* a* ? Oh wha does follow the blaw, the blaw ? Bonnie Charlie, the king o' us a', hurra ! Wi* his hundred pipers an' a', an' a'! His bonnet an' feather he's wavin' high ! His prancing steed maist seems to fly! The nor' wind plays wi' his curly hair, While the pipers blaw in an unco flare!
Wi' a hundred pipers an' a', an' a', Wi' a hundred pipers an' a', an' a'; We'll up an' gie 'em a blaw, a blaw, Wi' a hundred pipers an' a', an' a'.

The Esk was swollen, sae red, sae deep; But shouther to shouther the brave lads keep; Twa thousand swam ower to fell English ground, An* danc'd themselves dry to the pibroch's sound. Dumfounder'd, the English saw, they saw! Dumfounder'd, they heard the blaw, the blaw.' Dumfounder'd, they a' ran awa', awa' Frae the hundred pipers an' a', an' a'!
Wi' a hundred pipers, an' a', an' a*, Wi' a hundred pipers, an' a', an' a'; We'll up an' gie 'em a blaw, a blaw, Wi' a hundred pipers, an' a', an' a'.
H. 4868.
