Subject: RE: Show Us Your Haggis
Hi Barbara,

Jan and I are still on the job. I tried my hand at getting the lyrics from the various videos posted on YouTube.   Can't say I was brilliantly successful.   Got about 3 lines. I think Jan may be able to contact some of the people who commented on the video--she has a YouTube account. There's some complication about also having to get a Google account in order to comment--didn't Google just buy YouTube?   I would think a Scots poster might well be able to supply the lyrics.   We've also tried to buy a copy of the CD on i-Tunes--Jan is a huge supporter of the Red Noses program--she did it for years in the UK. But we weren't able to get a copy.

Yet another possibility might possibly be the busker who's coming to the US to pipe his way across the country. We've offered our spare bedroom for him in this area (DC area), and I've asked if he could possibly supply the lyrics to this song. Still unclear if he'll take our offer--he's still planning, I understand.

I'm sure we can get the lyrics somehow.
