O flow'r o' Scotland
When will we yer like again
That faced their bowlin'
And clyted them all roond the glen
They forced snicks and edges
And mishits holed out in the deep
To send them Lords-ward
Tae think again.

Alba gu bràth!

There's more than a "see" missing from that awful dirge, guaranteed to
lower the spirits and make your opponents laugh at the bathos of that
last line "send them homewards, tae think again".

I always have this image of Braveheart shaking his finger in the face of
a downcast 4 yo Sassenach "Now gae hame and think again". LOL

I can't help thinking the Scots would be more successful with abetter
anthem, it's not like they have some stirring ones like Scotland the Brave.

Not that GSTQ is much better for stirring the blood. Now Jerusalem...
