lyrics

We telt ya.
Y’wouldnae listen.
Did you think that we were
only messin’?
We telt ya
smell the bacon:
wake up, Great Britain,
the guillotine’s waiting.

We had our doubts, yeah.
Now we’re certain.
Scotland is dawning
but for you it’s curtains.

We’ll watch you sleepwalk to your grave
a senile old Frankenstein
drooling in waves.

We telt ya
get a grip;
we’re no wi’ ye oan yer
right wing death trip
wi’ yer tories
and yer racists.
You thought that we Jocks
didnae ken what our place is.

Ha!

Well who’s laughing now
as you leave Hamlyn town,
yer pied piper a mop-topped clown?

We telt ya.
Y’wouldnae listen.
You thought that you're all aff tae
true blue heaven.
We telt ya
if y’ gang doon that path
you’ll be deid in a ditch
chasing Nigel’s mirage.

So long.
Farewell.
Yer Rule Britannia’s sailing
straight to Hell.
Cheerio.
Smell y’ later.
The palace yer planning’s made
ootie newspaper.
Arrivederci
or plain goodbye
now we’ve made 58
ootie 45.
D’y’ hear that?
That’s right:
the fat lady’s singing
it’s thankyou goodnight.

Yeah, who’s laughing now
as you leave Hamlyn town,
yer pied piper a mop-topped clown?

So long.
Farewell.
Yer Rule Britannia’s sailing
straight to Hell.
Cheerio.
Smell y’ later.
The palace yer planning’s made
ootie newspaper.
Arrividerci
or plain goodbye
now we’ve made 58
ootie 45.
D’y’ hear that?
That’s right.
Cos frankly we’re aw had
enough of yer shite.
Thankyou for nothing,
Great Britain, goodnight.
