Air Falalalo

Melody -

There's lilt in the song I sing,
There's laughter and love
There's tang of the sea,
And blue from Heaven above!
Of reason there's none;
And why should there be, for why?
As long as there's fire in the blood,
And light in the eye!
|: Air falalalo horo, air falalalay :|
Air falalalo horo, air falalalay
Falee, falo, horo, air falalalay!
2. The heather's ablaze wi' bloom,
The myrtle is sweet
There's song in the air;
The road's a song at our feet!
So step it along as light
As the bird on the wing!
And, stepping along,
Let's join our voices and sing:

3. And whether the blood
Be Highland, Lowland or no,
And whether the hue be black
Or white as the snow;
Of kith and of kin, we are One,
Be it right, be it wrong,
If only our hearts beat true
To the lilt of the song!
