(Matt McGinn)

In 1314, the twenty-fourth of June
King Eddie says "We're ready now to steal the stone of Scone"
He brought his biggest army but discovered he'd backed a duece
At Bannockburn he found that he was up against a Bruce

cho: Well, we raised our pipes and the English kept a-coming
But they werena quite so happy when we gie'd the pipes a blaw
Struck once more, they began a-running
Ready steady Eddie, go, it's time to shoot the craw

Well, we had a bowl of porridge and a wee bit pinch of salt
We had a dram of whisky and it was the finest malt
We each wore a tammy and we wore the philibegs
Eddie was in terror when he seen the hairy legs

Now poor King Edward, nearly had a fit
When he seen his cavalry falling doon a pit
His men looked up from the trap that Bruce had built
And they were shocked to find out what was worn beneath the kilt

He sent for his archers, a group of country folk
They erred and they purred, what a funny way they spoke
With those archers Eddie had a go
But they were as effective as the ones on radio

On the fastest horse that you ever saw
King Eddie went a-racing o'er the Border and awa
He was fond of Scotland, but he never did return
He didn't like the welcome that he got at Bannockburn
