Come boat me o'er, come row me o'er,
Come boat me o'er to Charlie;
I'll gie John Ross anither bawbee
To boat me o'er to Charlie.

CHOR:We'll o'er the water, we'll o'er the sea,
We'll o'er the water to Charlie;
Come weal, come woe, we'll gather and go
And live or die wi Charlie.
I lo'e weel my Charlie's name,
Tho  some there be abhor him:
But O, to see auld Nick gaun hame,
And Charlie's faes be ore him!

I swear and vow by moon and stars,
And sun that shines so early!
If I had twenty thousand lives,
I'd die as aft for Charlie.-
