400 miles

Given that Johann Lamont murdered the lyrics of a Proclaimers song in Holyrood yesterday….when she said” Standard Life No more, Royal Bank No more, Shipbuilding No more, Scotland No more”

I thought I would do a wee parody of her parody of the Proclaimers, only a different song.

400 Miles

When I wake up, well, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the lackey who’s screeching over you
When I go out, yeah, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the bizzim who’s bawling “ye cannae do”
If I get stuck, well, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the fishwife that is stickin it to you
And if I haver, hey, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be Millipedes puppet doing whit ahm telt to do…

But I would walk four hundred miles
And I would walk four hundred more
Just to be the slave who walked a thousand miles
To reach up to Westminsters door

When I’m working, yes, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the bitch ,who’s working against you
And when the money comes in for all the work that Ithers do
I’ll squander every penny, with nane for you
When I come home (When I come home), oh, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the muppet who’s taking yours from you
And when I grow up, well, I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the serf who’s genetically programmed whit to do.

But I would walk four hundred miles
And I would walk four hundred more
Just to be the slave who walked a thousand miles
To reach up to Westminsters door

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod
