The Celtic singers Sileas, with harp accompaniment to their harmonic singing, all sweetened with photographs of garden flowers.

The words mean, in English translation:

Who will play the silver whistle?
Ho ro hu a hu il o Ho ro hu a hu il o
Hi ri hu o, hi ri hu o Hi ri hu o, hi ri hu o

Since the son of my king has come to Scotland
Ho ro hu a hu il o...

On a great ship with three masts of silver
Ho ro hu a hu il o...

On the handsome vessel with the silver rigging
Ho ro hu a hu il o...

Young Charles with the blue bewitching eyes
Ho ro hu a hu il o...

Welcome, welcome, may you be desired and famous
Ho ro hu a hu il o...

May there be fiddling and the choicest music before you
Ho ro hu a hu il o...

Who'd play it? Who'd say that I'd not play it myself?
Ho ro hu a hu il o ...

Who will play the silver whistle?
Ho ro hu a hu il o Ho ro hu a hu il o
Hi ri hu o, hi ri hu o Hi ri hu o, hi ri hu o
