Upon The Lommonds I Lay, I Lay

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

Chorus
The Campbells are comin, Oho! Oho!
The Campbells are comin, Oho! Oho!
The Campbells are comin to bonie Lochleven,
The Campbells are comin, Oho! Oho!
1.
Upon the Lommonds I lay, I lay,
Upon the Lommonds I lay, I lay,
I looked down to bonie Lochleven
And saw three bonie perches play.
2.
Great Argyle he goes before;
He maks his cannons and guns to roar,
Wi' sound o' trumpet, pipe and drum;
The Campbells are comin, Oho! Oho!
3.
The Campbells they are a' in arms,
Their loyal faith and truth to show,
Wi' banners rattling in the wind,
The Campbells are comin, Oho! Oho!

 

Chorus
The Campbells are coming, Oho! Oho!
The Campbells are coming, Oho! Oho!
The Campbells are coming to lovely Loch Leven,
The Campbells are coming, Oho! Oho!

Upon the Lommonds I lay, I lay,
Upon the Lommonds I lay, I lay,
I looked down to lovely Loch Leven
And saw three lovely perches play.

Great Argyle he goes before;
He makes his cannons and guns to roar,
With sound of trumpet, pipe and drum;
The Campbells are coming, Oho! Oho!

The Campbells they are all in arms,
Their loyal faith and truth to show,
With banners rattling in the wind,
The Campbells are coming, Oho! Oho!
