In Scotland, she is a national treasure.
She’s given us many hours of pleasure.
She’s entertained us through the years:
Made us laugh and moved us to tears.
She’s starred in every kind of show:
Comedy, thriller and even panto.
She’s appeared in shows on TV,
Such as Lewis, Vera and Casualty.
Her, a show’s director will often choose,
As she always receives such glowing reviews.
If her name is spied upon a cast list,
Then it’s a show that’s not to be missed.
A really huge effort, she always makes,
With any role which she undertakes.
Her dedication and attention to detail,
Both guarantee that she’ll never fail.
Her, the theatre critics never condemn.
She’s one of Scotland’s shining gems.
She possesses an admirable reputation,
Which makes her the pride of her nation.
In Scotland, she’s now a household name.
In my opinion, she should be made a Dame.
She favours roles which are strong and meaty.
She’s Scotland’s one and only Maureen Beattie.
