Thread Name: BS: Scottish National Anthem
Subject: RE: BS: Scottish National Anthem
Here's ane tae keep awbody happy.
Flower of Scotland the Brave

This fickle comatose land awoke on
The glorious twelfth September
Liberated fae past anxiety
Toffs, midyins 'n' common folks had spoke
We wir maybe a nation again
Or a semiautonomous territorial entity
It was a once in many lifetimes
Generations ae souls fae glens had flown
'tween parcel o' rogues and this brand new dawn
Now's the day and now's the hour How sweet, a clear day's dawin
Flower of Scotland the Brave
Fur oorsels at last , fur auld lang syne
Let me tell you that I love you
Flower of Scotland the Brave
I've tidied ma room and cam down fir ma tea
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye
Flower of Scotland the Brave
Some cannot speak may they only sing
Let their voices through the confusion ring
An anthem for oor precious hame
With awfy many from which tae choose
Thir's auld lang syne 'n' a that frae oor Rabbie
Or Amazing Grace or somethin no sae auld
Caledonia, Hermless, Scotland Yet,
Freedom Come All Ye
God save us from God Save the Queen

Oan that perhaps we cin aw agree .... Maybe (x3)

Hark the Herald anthems sing
For another tae the quandary bring
The cream o' the craft o' many a would be muse
Ancient and strong wi' a brand new tune
Maks the hairs on yer arms point tae the moon
So sing it loud like there's nothin' left tae lose
And when Lizzie cuts our ribbon a' these new songs mean
Mair than twa hundred reasons why the band
Disnae have tae play God Save the Queen

(chorus ........ and into Auld Lang Syne)

.... ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot And days o auld lang syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot And never brought to mind
For auld lang syne ma dear For auld lang syne
We'll tak a cup o kindness yet For auld lang syne
Whit dae ye think o that then?Haud on,ah forgot wha wrote it an iy's copyricht so ah'll nip back an get the name. ljc
