A Scots Anthem ©

Calum Stewart
Glasgow, Scotland

We've won many great battles in history,
Most wondrous at a place called Wembley,
Where the then world champs were cut to pieces,
By big Jim Baxter and three of his nieces.

We use words like dod, ken and wee,
no bad is the ultimate thing to be,
A spider's a beastie, a child's a bairn
Och, it's an easy language to learn

Our great socialists like Tommy Sheridan
Work very hard to make us care again
But like the rest of the proletariat
I would ask Tommy, where's the party at?

We Scots invented the modern age
TV, Telephone and the Pantomime stage
Then there's John Knox, the great Presbyterian,
Who preached Hell's fire, for those who didn't believe in him.

The breadth of our culture is simply outstandin',
From Sir Walter Scott to today's Ian Rankin
There's Rabbie Burns', "A man's a man for a that."
Coming a very close second to "Chewin the fat."
