- Doon at Ardnadum, sittin’ at the pier
When Ah heard a polis shout, ‘Ye’ll no sit here!’
‘Ay but Ah wull sit here!’
‘Naw, but ye’ll no sit here!’
‘Aye, but Ah wull! ‘Naw but ye’ll no!’
‘Aye, but Ah wull sit here!’
- ’Twas chief Inspector Runcie, enhancing his career,
Prancing up an’ doon the road like Yogi Bear.
- He caa’d for help tae Glesca, they nearly chowed his ear:
We’ve got the Gers and Celtic demonstrators here.
- He telephoned the sodgers, but didnae mak it clear.
The sodgers sent doon Andy Stewart tae volunteer.
- He radioed the White Hoose, but a’ that he could hear
Wis twa‘¦wan‘¦zero — an’ the set went queer.
- For Jack had drapt an H‑bomb an’ gied his-sel a shroud,
An’ met wi’ Billy Graham on a wee white cloud.
This song is a typical Scots anti-nuclear-weapons song, based on a rude Glasgow ‘street’ song. this is the 1960s version, which was revised for use in the 1970s, then the 1980s, then again in 2006 when the location was Faslane and the villains were updated, and the police tried not to laugh!
