Three voyagers come from afar
Paid homage to fair Edinburgh
Its castles carved of stone we saw
Its emerald hills left us in awe
And lost amidst a sight so fine
I recall the bards’ tales wove ‘auld lang syne’
Of brave men lost in freedom’s fight
Good lads defendin’ the poor man’s right
O splendid memories that make hearts sing
Fair Edinburgh, what joy you bring
And thus with sorrow we now must part
But Edinburgh, you live on in my heart
