If you're anything like us, you try to sing along every time the gorgeous Outlander theme plays. 

If you're even more like us, you've been singing it wrong this whole time, like an idiot who thought "laspy eye" was a thing. 

Now, you don't have to sound like an idiot any longer, because we've got your first look at a handy dandy lyric video to go along with the tune, accompanied by scenes from season one (including some unseen footage). 

The best part of the whole thing (aside from curing our laspy eye) is that star Sam Heughan introduces the video, and we are here for any opportunity to stare at his face, or any part of him, really. 

Go ahead and watch the video now, and see how well you know the lyrics! 

"The Main Title sequence of Outlander is an adaptation of my favorite Scottish folk tune, ‘The Skye Boat Song,'" composer Bear McCreary said of the now iconic tune. "I've always adored this piece, and felt its well-known lyrical connection to the Jacobite Uprising would make it appropriate for this show. I struggled to connect with the more famous lyrics by Sir Harold Boulton, however. Thankfully, vocalist Raya Yarbrough recalled another set of lyrics by Robert Louis Stevenson, which were much better suited to Claire's story.  After we altered a few consonants to change the gender of the speaker, they connected even more directly. This lyric video allows these words to shine as it takes us back in time with Claire on her journey."
