Wallace     by: Wheeler, Les

Doon at Dunnottar the English took a swim
Here's Wullie Wallace- they didna like him!
The English fired Aiberdeen ae sabbath nicht
But Wallace took the herbour and set their boats alicht.

Hae! Willie Wallace are ye leavin oor toon?
'I'm gyan tae London, but ye'll see me soon.
Ye winna see ma heid an ye winna see ma hairt
But my airms an legs'll be in your kirkyaird!’
