Shearin's No For
You
A simple brief
thought on Scottish
Independance.

Were the outdated
union not of some very
high value to England and
the English, why would
they fight so to try to
keep it?

There are only so many
slices to a pie, for one to
have more, another must
have less.

Lastly - to those Scottish
"Loyalists" - to whom are
you loyal?
Scots royalty died in the
1700's so it can be no
Scots crown - And
certainly not it appears to
those who came before,
that bled for Scotland
and her freedom !  
In the words
of Burns, as he
wrote from the heart.

Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victorie.

Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lour;
See approach proud Edward's power,
Chains and slaverie.

Wha would be a traitor-knave?
Wha can fill a coward's grave?
Wha sae base as be a Slave?
Let him turn and flie:

Wha for Scotland's king and law,
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Free-man stand, or free-man fa',
Let him follow me.

By Oppression's woes and pains!
By your Sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!

Lay the proud Usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty's in every blow!
Let us Do - or Die!!
!

Choose your destiny.
Oh the shearin's no for you
My bonnie lassie o
Oh the shearin's no for you
My bonnie lassie o
Oh the shearin's no for you
For your back it winna bow
And your belly's roarin' fu'
My bonnie lassie o

Dae ye mind on yonder hill
My bonnie laddie o
Dae ye mind on yonder hill
My bonnie laddie o
Dae ye mind on yonder hill
When you said you wid me kill
If you didna hae yer will
My bonnie laddie o

It was in the month of May
My bonnie lassie o
It was in the month of May
My bonnie lassie o
It was in the month of May
When the flooers they are gay
And the lambs they sport and play
My bonnie lassie o

Oh it's I'll no kill ye deid
My bonnie lassie o
Oh it's I'll no kill ye deid
My bonnie lassie o
Oh it's I'll no kill ye deid
Nor mak' yer body bleed
But I'll marry ye wi' speed
My bonnie lassie o
