ALMOST CHRISTMAS DAY

 

Out in the harbour storm and waves
Stonehaven folk in dismay
Flooded houses, broken hearts
Almost Christmas day

 

A storm like a hurricane from the sea
Thundered into our bay
Wind and waves and a crashing tide
Trying to wash us away

 

Children crying presents gone
Floating out on the tide
Bicycles bears stockings and trees
Christmas dreams have died

 

Cars got bashed boats got smashed
Trouble for the MRI
Wood and seaweed floated down the street
As Santa waved goodbye

 

Out in the harbour storm and waves
Stonehaven folk in dismay
Flooded houses, broken hearts
Almost Christmas day

 

Giant rocks no man could move
Streets full of deep black mud
Sand and sewage and massive rocks
Left there after the flood

 

How could it happen, what did you feel?
Frightened, amazed or annoyed?
Old people rescued, homes left behind
People felt destroyed

 

But folks rallied round, help was found
Sunshine after the rain
Gifts of toys and toiletries came
And Stonehaven started again

 

That was then, but things have changed
 People are back home now
Happy and hopeful it won't come again
Joy in Stonehaven town

 

Out in the harbour storm and waves
Stonehaven folk in dismay
Flooded houses, broken hearts
Almost Christmas day

GET OUT NOW!

 

Look out here comes a hurricane (WHSSH!)
Look out here comes a hurricane (WHSSH!)
Look out! Look out! Look out! Look out!
Look out here comes a hurricane (WHSSH!)

 

There's a volcano up the hill (BOOM!)
There's a volcano up the hill (BOOM!)
There's a volcano, there's a volcano
There's a volcano up the hill (BOOM!)

 

There's a tsunami on the way (RUN!)
There's a tsunami on the way (RUN!)
There's a tsunami, there's a tsunami
There's a tsunami on the way (RUN!)

 

The ground has started to shake (shake)
This must be an earthquake
GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT!

This must be an earthquake

THE IRON HATS ARE COMING

 

The iron hats are on the sea

Blow your horn, blow your horn

They’re coming to get you and me

Blow your horn, fiercely.

 

The dragon ship is coming near,

Blow your horn, blow your horn.

Very soon they will be here,

Blow your horn, fiercely.

 

Light the beacons send the scouts

Blow your horn, blow your horn.

Spread the word all about

Blow your horn, fiercely.

 

Our cows and sheep they’ve come to pillage

Blow your horn, blow your horn

We’ll all fight to save our village

Blow your horn, fiercely.

 

Ready your sword, draw your bow,

Blow your horn, blow your horn.

It’s now or never defeat our foe

Blow your horn, fiercely.

 

Lochlanners you will lose,

Blow your horn, blow your horn.

We will grind you under our shoes

Blow your horn, fiercely.

 

Alba must be free,

Blow your horn, blow your horn.

We will cheer our victory.

Blow your horn, triumphantly!

GREAT AULD STONEY TOON


In Stoney we like to go to the beach
Sometimes we swim, sometimes we dip our feet
Then off to the Bay for some fish and chips to eat
Lots to do in great auld Stoney toon [in harmony]

 

Swishing past my face, Great Balls Of Fire,
Whizzing in the air, swinging low and higher
Then into the harbour until the flames expire
Lots to do in great auld Stoney toon

 

Down by the beach, next to the bay
Auntie Betty’s icecream, eat it all day
So many flavours, too many to say
Lots to do in great auld Stoney toon

 

Pistachio, strawberry, chocolate, Irn Bru
Mint chocolate for me, icecream cake for you
Better than Baskin Robbins, come and join the queue
Lots to do in great auld Stoney toon

WHEN I WIS SINGLE

 

When I wis single I used to play fit baa

Noo am married I dinna hae time at aa

 

One says mammie I want a cuddly toy

The other says mammie I want a baby boy

 

When I wis single I used to paint ma nails

Noo am married I feel like am in jail

  

One says mammie I need some money

The other says mammie who ate the runny honey 

 

When I wis single I played aa day lang

Noo am married I feel ma life’s gan wrang

One says mammie I don’t wanna go to bed

The other says mammie a toaster hit ma head
