Remember John MacLean

  • (John McGrath)

    What freedom you call is not freedom at all
    Till tyranny is done
    Not the English alone but the tyrants at home
    Must go before we've won

    You working men of Scotland, all you who want her free
    Remember John MacLean right well, or free you'll never be

    What good your flags and banners, what good your Bannockburn
    When Scotland's full of money-men who will rob you in their turn

    We'll proudly build our Scotland where landlords' fences fall
    Where industry's for you and me, where each can work for all

    (as sung by Gaberlunzie)
