The New Scottish National Anthem

scotlandI offered an extra prize the other night at the Brass Monkey Leith for the team who could make the best suggestion for a new national anthem if Scotland votes for independence next year.

Here are the suggestions I received:

  • “Ooh Stick You” by Daphene & Celeste
  • “God Save Our Susan Boyle”
  • The “Game of Thrones” theme
  • “I Dreamed a Dream” by Susan Boyle
  • “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany
  • “Flower of Scotland”

another team offered lyrics, thus:

“Her majesty the Queen
Shops at Burtons
From the top of Ben Nevis
We can smell her beef curtains”

while another team offered this:

“Another Pint, The Weather’s Shite,
Everything Will Be Alright”

What does this say about us? I have no idea but Susan Boyle looms large in proceedings. Perhaps one day she will rule us all.
