DUNNOTTAR HERRINS’ HEIDS by P5/6 DUNNOTTAR

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ heids?

We'll mak them intae loaves o breid
We’ll mak them intae loaves o breid an aa sorts o things
Oh the herrin is the king o the sea,

The herrin is the fish for tea
The herring is the king o the sea

Sing fal the doo a day

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ eyes?
We’ll mak them intae soup surprise

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ fins?
We’ll mak them intae hairy chins

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ scales
We’ll mak them intae golden whales

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ bellies
We’ll mak them intae smelly jelly

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ backs
We’ll mak them intae sticky flapjacks

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ bones
We’ll mak them intae icecream cones

 

What’ll we dae wi the herrins’ tails
We’ll gie them tae a fantastic male
We’ll gie them tae the Prince o Wales an aa sorts o things

Herrins’ tails, Prince o Wales
Herrins’ bones, icecream cones
Herrins’ backs, sticky flapjacks
Herrins’ bellies, smelly jelly
Herrins’ scales, golden whales
Herrins’ fins, hairy chins
Herrins’ eyes, soup surprise
Herrins’ heids, loaves o breid an aa sorts o things
The herrin is the king o the sea
The herrin is the fish for tea
Sing fal the doo a day

MARCHING TO DUNNOTTAR
Written by Luthermuir / Marykirk P3/4/5 with Ewan McVicar

 

All around Dunnottar Castle
Sassenachs want our Crown Jewels

 

We’re afraid, but we are angry
Danger is our middle name

 

So we’re marching to Dunnottar, Dunnottar, Dunnottar
So we’re marching to Dunnottar

With our swords and shields and long sharp spears
And at the front the Saltire flying high

 

Added to by P5/6 Dunnottar PS, June 2013

Mrs Granger, Kineff Church
Hid the Jewels under her skirt

 

They were lowered in a basket
To the rocky beach below

 

They were smuggled past the soldiers, the soldiers, the soldiers
They were smuggled past the soldiers

Then buried for eleven years then found again
When Charles came back to rule

 

Where are Scotland’s Crown jewels
The Sceptre and the Sword of State


Our Crown of gold and sapphires
With its gleaming cross on top


In Edinburgh Castle, the Castle, the Castle
In Edinburgh Castle
You go through the square and up the stairs and in a dark room there’s a glass case there

 

So we’re marching to Dunnottar, Dunnottar, Dunnottar
So we’re marching to Dunnottar

With our swords and shields and long sharp spears
And at the front the Saltire flying high

 

New verses for Great Auld Stoney Toon

At Dunnottar Castle a long time ago
The Crown Jewels were buried in the church down below
Hidden eleven years through Sun Rain and Snow
If you went there you would never know

 

When you’re at the beach cover up with sand
If the sun will shine we’ll all get tanned
If it’s warm to enough to swim that would be grand

Lots to do in great auld Stoney toon
