Freedom Come Aa Ye

( Words : Hamish Henderson[1]
Music : 'The Bloody Fields of Flanders' )

Roch the win i the clear day's dawin
Blaws the clouds heilster-gowdie owre the bay
But there's mair nor a roch win blawin
Thro the Great Glen o the warl the day
It's a thocht that wad gar our rottans
Aa thae rogues that gang gallus fresh an gay
Tak the road an seek ither loanins
Wi thair ill-ploys tae sport an play

Nae mair will our bonnie callants
Merch tae war whan our braggarts crousely craw
Nor wee weans frae pitheid an clachan
Murn the ships sailin doun the Broomielaw
Broken faimilies in launs we've hairriet
Will curse 'Scotlan the Brave' nae mair, nae mair
Black an white ane-til-ither mairriet
Mak the vile barracks o thair maisters bare

Sae come aa ye at hame wi freedom
Never heed whit the houdies croak for Doom
In yer hous aa the bairns o Aidam
Will fin breid, barley-bree an paintit room
Whan MacLean meets wi's friens in Springburn
Aa thae roses an geeans will turn tae blume
An a black laud frae yont Nyanga
Dings the fell gallows o the burghers doun.

I was totally starving after my workout and I just ate the perfect breakfast; warm rice mixed with nam prik with some slices of cucumber and sweet red pepper and a few peanuts. Most satisfying.

We have a winner! [ profile] blonde222's nomination of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon raked in 41 votes closely followed by [ profile] ghastlymess who scored 33 votes for Amelie. Poke them with a sharp stick everyone!

Actually, I'm pretty amazed by how many of you have seen rather a lot of not very mainstream films. I am of course amazed, and horrified, that so many of you haven't seen The Seventh Seal. Still, the good thing is that you have a great film experience ahead of you.
