lyrics

A piper on Princes Street plays for the tourists who throw him their coins in reply
His Robertson tartan's a proud battered remnant of a Scotland that's long since gone by

Some day our wee country will again be a nation
I belong to Scotland and in Scotland i'll bide
I'll wait for that day with anticipation
They've taken our freedom but they'll no' take our pride

Well it's said that without the support of Great Britain our economy wouldn't be strong
But we've yet to be given the chance we deserve to prove that that theory is wrong

Some day our wee country will again be a nation
I belong to Scotland and in Scotland i'll bide
I'll wait for that day with anticipation
They've taken our freedom but they'll no' take our pride

So we're facing the future and like it or not there's decisions that have to be made
To survive as a colony of a long fallen empire is something i would happily trade

Some day our wee country will again be a nation
I belong to Scotland and in Scotland i'll bide
I'll wait for that day with anticipation
They've taken our freedom but they'll no' take our pride
