lyrics

Yer gowden glow o feidle greits the keik o day,
Snawcappit ben wae glomin licht a’ growin fey,
Yer eilean jowels lie skailt, seilie whaur machair lay,
Frae Ùibhist “lan o bigg” ower sea tae Galloway….

You’ve got everything we need, hó-ró
You’ve got everything we need, hó-ró
There’s no land that can compete,
(wae ye! fur us! cis ye!)
You’ve got everything we need

Ye’v leived a thousan million lives syne ye wer born,
Yer bairnie’s bairns’v cast yer peit an heized yer corn,
Ye’v grown up, mairret, faucht an deied yet aye prevail,
This praicious lan, frae Pittenweem up tae Kintail….

You’ve got everything we need, hó-ró
You’ve got everything we need, hó-ró
There’s no land that can compete,
(wae ye! fur us! cis ye!)
You’ve got everything we need
You’ve got everything we need

Air son na fìrinn, tha sinn ‘seinn
Nach seinn sibh còmhla ruinn?
Air son na fìrinn, tha sinn ‘seinn
Nach seinn sibh còmhla ruinn?

(For the truth it is that we sing
Won’t you sing along with us?)
