No. 8 - Song - The Mayor and Servants

MIDI File

Mayor: My hairt is in the Highlands O;
My hairt it is nae here;
Tho' in this dress I must confess
I feel extremely queer!
Tammas & Servants: We feel very queer!
Mayor: I'm up in Gaelic dialect,
The pipes I'll learn to play,
But oh! my knees will surely freeze.
Tammas: Will surely freeze.
Servants: Will surely freeze.
Mayor: But oh! my knees will surely freeze,
If there's a frost today.
Tammas & Servants: That is very true.
Mayor: Still, I am a Highland-man,
A tartan plaided Highland-man,
As callant canty Highland-man
As ever you did see.
Tammas & Servants: Yes, he's a Highland-man,
A tartan plaided Highland-man,
As callant canty Highland-man
As ever you did see.
Mayor: Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
England, how we'll plague her, O!
Pipers blaw and clansman draw,
Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
Tammas & Servants: Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
England, how we'll plague her, O!
Pipers blaw and clansman draw,
For Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
   
Mayor: I do not know a pibroch
From a bunch of philabegs;
But reels and flings are just the things
To limber up the legs!
Tammas & Servants: Limber up the legs!
Mayor: My hairt is in the Highlands O;
I am a Highland chief;
Although a chance at longer pants,
Tammas: We'd like a chance,
Servants: At longer pants,
Mayor: Oh, yes a chance at longer pants
Would give my soul relief.
Tammas & Servants: Oh, what a relief.
Mayor: Still, I am a Highland-man,
A tartan plaided Highland-man,
As callant canty Highland-man
As ever you did see.
Tammas & Servants: Yes, he's a Highland-man,
A tartan plaided Highland-man,
As callant canty Highland-man
As ever you did see.
Mayor: Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
England, how we'll plague her, O!
Pipers blaw and clansman draw,
Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
Tammas & Servants: Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
England, how we'll plague her, O!
Pipers blaw and clansman draw,
For Rob Roy Mc.Gregor, O!
