Ye’ll No Sit Here

  1. Doon at Ard­nad­um, sit­tin’ at the pier
    When Ah heard a polis shout, ‘Ye’ll no sit here!’

Cho­rus:
‘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!’

  1. ’Twas chief Inspec­tor Run­cie, enhanc­ing his career,
    Pranc­ing up an’ doon the road like Yogi Bear.
  2. He caa’d for help tae Glesca, they near­ly chowed his ear:
    We’ve got the Gers and Celtic demon­stra­tors here.
  3. He tele­phoned the sodgers, but did­nae mak it clear.
    The sodgers sent doon Andy Stew­art tae vol­un­teer.
  4. He radioed the White Hoose, but a’ that he could hear
    Wis twa‘¦wan‘¦zero — an’ the set went queer.
  5. For Jack had drapt an H‑bomb an’ gied his-sel a shroud,
    An’ met wi’ Bil­ly Gra­ham on a wee white cloud.

Notes

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!
