Refrein
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.
Klein koor
What care we to white the minch is,
What care we for wind or weather.
Let her go boys, every inch is,
Wearing home, home to Mingulay.

Refrein:
Klein koor
Dolphins springing, children singing,
Sun is glintstening on the water.
Haul her round boys and we’ll soon be,
Once again home in Mingulay.

Refrein:

Klein koor
Wives are waiting by the harbour,
Wives been waiting since break o-day-o.
Wives been waiting by the harbour,
Til the sun sets on Mingulay.

Refrein:

Klein koor
Wives and sweethearts on the hillside,
Looking seaward trough the heater.
Let her go boys, and we’ll anchor,
‘Ere the sun sets on Mingulay.

Refrein: (2 keer)
