A Wee Bit of Scotland Here

 

Father hails from Glasgow town

Mother she’s from Fife

I was born in Possilpark

And lived there my young life

He came to find employment

In the yards along the quay

We share a house on Mary’s Road

With the Johnstons from Dundee

 

With tales from Caledonia

And songs that we love dear

In the kitchen on a Saturday night

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here

 

My sister’s just gone eighteen years

And earns a grown mans’ wage

She turns a lathe where bombs are made

Like so many of her age

There are families here from Govan town

Edinburgh too

The shipyard’s full of sturdy lads

All Tradesmen loyal and true

 

With tales from Caledonia

And songs that we love dear

In the kitchen on a Saturday night

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here

 

Brother Jim’s a ranger now

A gallant drummer boy

Parading with his regiment

My parents’ pride and joy

I’m soon to join him in the ranks

Bound for foreign shores

We’ll serve the King with honour true

E’re we return once more

 

With tales from Caledonia

And songs that we love dear

In the kitchen on a Saturday night

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here

 

With tales from Caledonia

And songs that we love dear

In the kitchen on a Saturday night

We’ve a wee bit of Scotland here
