Hi,

The Alexander Brothers have a recording of this song, which can be downloaded from Limewire.Com (You don't have to sign up for the full version of Limewire, the free version will do just fine. You have to download their software first)

Here are the words as sung by The Alexander Brothers

When the pipes are ringing and the kilts are swinging
And your heart is singing as you gaily march along
You can hear the story that is brave and gory
In the tunes of glory of an old Scots song

Standing near them, as you ever hear them
You will want to cheer them as you feel the goried air
The rhythm fills you and the drumbeat fills you
And the music thrills you of the Old Black Bear

CHORUS
Brave are the honours we carry before us
Brave are the hearts that we lift in the chorus
Hear them playing, hear them saying
For that's the story in the tunes of glory

When the pipes are ringing and the kilts are swinging
And your heart is singing as you gaily march along
You can hear the story that is brave and gory
In the tunes of glory of an old Scots song

Repeat Chorus

Hope this helps
