STRUGGLING FOR SEPERATE IDENTITY - IT IS POSSIBLE WITHIN UNITY!

Magejestic, craggy mountains, touched by purple heather,
Stag and sheep and man have learned to live on them, despite inclement weather!
Centuries of history passed down by the fire's light,
In song... and story... the skirl of the pipes... and whisky making eyes shine bright!
A proud and courageous people, whose speech can sound so harsh - 
Yet... beneath each breast -  a heart can be as soft as yon boggy marsh!
Struggling for seperate identity - it IS possible within unity!

More majestic mountains decorated with waterfalls,
A gentler lilt to the language here, proud heritage recalls!
Stories told of daring do,
To fire the blood of me and you!
The struggling of the people here,
Was written in beautiful music and song and sung year after year!
Struggling for seperate identity - it IS possible within unity!

A land of lush, green vistas, as far as the eye can see,
A humorous, attractive people, with a tragic history!
For the enemy that they fight is each other,
Bigotry sets one against the other!
Yet... The Blessings God's Open Hand has Poured out,
Should help them to give a victory shout!
Struggling for seperate identity - it IS possible within unity!

A land of endless variety, from north to south and east to west,
The climate may be varied, but... when perfect it's the best!
The scenery is as different as the people dwelling here,
In times past they have defended it with blood and sweat and tears!
Now the biggest battle it would SEEM is struggling to encompass those from other shores,
No longer welcome in their own lands... our world renowned hospitality they have come to explore!
Struggling for seperate identity - it IS possible within unity!

This 'Land of Hope and Glory'... with ALL its faults and pain,
Through God's Wisdom... Love... and Guidance... could be truly great again!
