"It is time" by Colin Lowley
I have hung out my flag,
Can you see it hanging free?
It's red white and blue
tonight, we make history!

Some of the blues do not like it,
up in bonny Scotaland,
these canny be- moaners,
have pushed away our hand.

If they have their way
it will be red and white one day,
they ignored their previous vote,
and now ba like hungry goats.

So, to those who stay silent,
up there on a highland green,
your voice is so much needed,
please shout so you are seen.

We were born on the same land,
although many miles apart,
fought wars and died together,
you are always in our hearts.

Play "Scotland the brave"
and point the bagpipes our way
to keep our union intact,
then Burns and Shakespeare can dance away.

Author Notes
1 and a half hours to go and a glass of beer to celebrate.
