I agree with you, Richard, but I think most of us would simply leave such a lovely song to the Scots to sing and we can sit back and enjoy. There are plenty of songs in English or our own dialects without ruining someone else's tradition. We were lucky in Hull as we had our own resident Scot, Jock Manuel, to sing to us all of these lovely songs. I could probably sing most of them just from hearing him sing them so often but I wouldn't want to make an arse of myself in doing so.
