Traditional
  1. There are twa bonnie maidens, and three bonnie maidens,
    Cam' owre the Minch, and cam' owre the main,
    Wi' the wind for their way, and the corrie for their hame,
    And they are dearly welcome to Skye once again.
    Come along, come along, wi' your boatie and your song,
    My ain bonnie maidens, my twa bonnie maidens,
    For the night it is dark and the red coat is gone
    And ye are dearly welcome to Skye once again.
  2. There is Flora my honey, sae dear and sae bonnie,
    And ane that's sae tall, and sae handsome withal;
    Put the one for my king, and the other for my queen,
    And they are dearly welcome to Skye once again.
    Come along, come along, wií your boatie and your song,
    My ain bonnie maidens, my twa bonnie maidens,
    For the Lady Macoulain she dwelleth her lane
    And she'll welcome you dearly to Skye once again.
  3. There's a wind on the tree, and a ship on the sea,
    My ain bonnie maidens my twa bonnie maidens,
    Your cradle I'll rock on the lea of the rock,
    And ye'll aye be welcome to Skye once again.
    Come along, come along, wií your boatie and your song,
    My ain bonnie. maidens, my twa bonnie maidens,
    Mair sound shall ye sleep as ye rock on the deep,
    And ye'll aye be welcome to Skye once again.
