Lyrics
What care we how light the spray is?
What care we for wind or weather?
Let her go, boys, every inch is
Sailin' homeward to Mingulay.
Chorus:
Heel ya ho, boys, let her go boys
Heave her head 'round into the weather
Heel ya ho, boys, let her go boys
Sailin' homeward to Mingulay

Clap your eyes on the sun arisin'
Gulls and doves fill the sky with feather
Cut her loose, boys, for the horizon
We'll be home soon in Mingulay (Chorus)

Wives are waitin' on the bank or
Lookin' seaward, from the heather
Pull her round boys, and you'll anchor
'Ere the sun sets on Mingulay (Chorus)

[Ladies] Wives are waiting by the harbor,
We've been waiting since break of day.
[Men] We're pumped dry and walking larboard,
To our wives on Mingulay (Chorus)
