Scotland's Lost Its Sense Of Humour

  • (Peter Nardini / ad. Iain C. MacKintosh)

    They say Scotland's lost its sense of humour
    We don't need to worry
    He isn't dead, it's just a rumour
    He's up there, cookin' curry

    All the laughter he created, so appreciated
    We're all living under his spell
    In a style never dated, much imitated
    As long as there's a joke left to tell

    He didn't mean us to call him a genius
    'Tis a word that is often abused
    But that's what he's seen as by many among us
    For keeping the nation amused

    And now that he's driven through the land of the livin'
    And decided it's time to get off
    If his sins are forgiven and he's up there in Heaven
    God's in for a hell of a laugh

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)
