Scotland The Brave UK


Scotland oh! Scotland,
What have we done to thee,
That thou should'st want to part
When brothers both are we.

Have we not fought for freedoms sake,
side by bloody side,
And have we not shed both our blood,
in mutual victorious pride.

What do we say, to those who laid,
there lives down for our future,
Do we not owe it to the past
to, keep the bonds that bind us fast,

Should we not celebrate,
The differences that make us great,
And that together, unity,
is both our destiny and fate.

Would the square at Waterloo have held '
if tartan had been absent,
If the fife and drums, in solitary refrain,
'had no the pipes' to vent,

Would Sevastapol still hold the walls,
and would we be outside them,
We've been over The top. under the wire,
together we've suffered enemy fire.

The enemy now are those
who have, an interest in disunion,
'Divide and conquer', 'fan the hate',
Let's hope to God it's not too late,

Let us have faith in common sense,
play Scotland the brave.
As you march to the polls, vote no,
and maybe our country you'll save.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
