The queerest thing yiv ever seen
Happen'd ae day in Aiberdeen!
It wis a shame- oh, it was a sin!
Fan a germ jumped oot o a corned beef tin!
The City Hospital was the place
Tae hide awa oor toon's disgrace:
The shops were spotless, oor lavvies clean,
But nae mair visitors to Aiberdeen.
Fit could we dee?- It wis oot o oor hands,
The Silver City wi the empty sands,
But we're nae feel in Aiberdeen-
The Toon wis saved- God Save the Queen!
