FAILTE GU ALBA - WELCOME TO SCOTLAND
That man who supports independence Him in that parliament; him on the telly – aye, him Papers say he’s the only one to share the dream, don’t they He’s only one man mind you.
But see that mother who supports independence Lives down the road from me – aye, her Wakes up, rubs her eyes, brews the tea Comes by with her shopping and all that Has three kids, penniless as she is Wants them to go to university she says She’s only one mother mind you.
And see that guy who supports independence Spoke to him on the bus to work – aye, him Works a shift, dreams, gets by Says he’s all green; windfarms, nae trident and that Wants a government closer to home So’s he can keep up a wage He’s only one guy mind you.
And see that migrant who supports independence Came from India with his family – aye, him Lives in an old tenement True Scotsman to the bone Says India did it years ago: What’s taking you so long? Self-governance, the human struggle and all that He’s only one migrant mind you.
And see that teacher who supports independence Works in that school round the corner – aye, her Holds class, reads books, tells stories The power of imagination! she tells them And they listen to her and dream Says it’s a new chapter, a new start and all that She’s only one teacher mind you.
But see what the papers call a one-man band All posturing, politics and that Sounds more like an orchestra out on the streets Waking restless dreamers to a call.
