Yes, I think I've done this before....., never mind

It's up the Clyde comes Lanin-a super-duper Yank
But doon a damn sight quicker when we coup him doon the stank
Up tae the neck in sludge and sewage fairly stops yer swank
--We are the Glesca Eskimos

Hullo, hullo, we are the Eskimos
Hullo, hullo, the Glesca Eskimos
We'll gaff that nyaff ca'd Lanin
We'll spear him whaur he blows
We are the Glesca Eskimos

It's in an oot, an up an doon, an on an aff the piers
There's cooncilors, collaborators, pimps and profiteers
The hairies jouk the polis, and the polis jouk the queers
--We are the Glesca Eskimos

There's dredgers and there's sludgie-boats tae keep the river clean
Ye lift yuir haun an pu the chain--ye ken fine whit ah mean
But why in the hell has the Holy Loch been left ootside the scheme
--We are the Glesca Eskimos

We've been in mony a rammy, lads, we've been in mony a tear
We've sortit oot this kind afore, we'll sort them onywhere
O, get yuir harpoons ready--he's comin up for air
--We are the Glesca Eskimos
