Thistle of Scotland....There are at least 3 sets of words...one is
THE THISTLE O' SCOTLAND

[CHORUS:] O the Thistle o' Scotland was famous of auld,
Wi' its toorie sae snod and its bristles sae bauld,
'Tis the badge of my country, it's aye dear tae me;
And the thocht o' them baith brings the licht tae my e'e.

[VERSE:] Its strength and its beauty the storm never harms;
It stan's on its guard like a warrior in arms;
Yet its down is as saft as the gulls on the sea,
And its tassie as bricht as my Jeannie's blue e'e.

O, my country, what wonder yer fame's gane afar;
For yer sons ha'e been great baith in peace and in war;
While the sang and the tale live they'll win respect,
The lads 'neath the bonnets wi' thistles bedeckt.

Lang syne the invaders cam owre to our shore,
And fiercely our thistle they scutched and they tore;
When they maist thocht it deid, 'twas then it up bore,
And it bloomed on their graves quite as strong as before.

My blessings be yours! Is there Scotsman ava
Wad stan' by and see ony harm on ye fa'?
Is there gentle or semple wha lives in our land
Wad refuse to drink health to the thistle so grand?



The Black Bear Andy Stewart

Now when the pipes are ringing and the kilts are swinging.
And your heart is singing as you gaily march along.
You can hear the story that is brave and roary
In the tunes of glory of an old Scots song.

If you're standing near them and you ever hear them.
You will want to cheer them as you feel the glory there.
Because the rhythm fills you and the drum beat wills you.
And the music thrills you of the old Black Bear.

Brave are the orders we carry before us
Brave are the hearts that will lift in the chorus
Hear them playing, hear them saying
That's the story in the tunes of glory

When the pipes are ringing and the kilts are swinging.
And your heart is singing as you gaily march along.
You can hear the story that is brave and roary
In the tunes of glory of an old Scots song.

Brave are the orders we carry before us
Brave are the hearts that will lift in the chorus
Hear them playing, hear them saying
That's the story in the tunes of glory

Brave are the orders we carry before us
Brave are the hearts that will lift in the chorus
Hear them playing, hear them saying
That's the story in the tunes of glory

If you're standing near them and you ever hear them.
You will want to cheer them as you feel the glory there.
Because the rhythm fills you and the drum beat wills you.
And the music thrills you of the old Black Bear.

Brave are the orders we carry before us
Brave are the hearts that will lift in the chorus
Hear them playing, hear them saying
That's the story in the tunes of glory
