Irish supporters of a yes vote for an independent Scotland in tomorrow’s referendum at the statue of Edinburgh-born James Connolly outside Liberty Hall, Dublin.
“Who are you my friend? Who are you Scotland?
Are you A Brit or a Scot?
Can we move on from dated notions of Patriotism.
We are one Human race, so Look beyond my Face.
I am with you in Scotland, with your Natural Gas and Single Malt.
I am with you in Scotland with your deep fried Mars Bars and Irn-Bru
I am with you in Scotland, stand up and look at you.
I am with you in Scotland, this is no joke?
Let’s Burn the Empire, make it go down in smoke.
You’re a proud people, with a strong history.
So just think of what WIlliam Wallace or Robbie Burns would say.
I met a band in Armenia, they’re called the Bambir.
They make music to Rumi and Robbie Burns, two poets they love so well.
They also love Blake, who wrote Heaven and Hell.
Think of this Scotland, a rock band in Armenia play music to the words from your Man.
They toured around Ireland, I helped with my van.
They are an amazing people and they love the Celts.
In ancient Armenia they have Celtic Crosses too.
They love Scotland and Ireland now what will we do?
We are all distant cousins, if you go back far enough.
So forget about Cameron, no more of his GUFF.
I am with you in Scotland; who the feck are YE?
I am with you in Scotland; now what to do.
I am with you in Scotland, stand and fight,
Let’s build a Socialist Europe, WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!
I am with you in Scotland, from Iona to the Edinburgh Streets,
I am with you in Scotland, let’s move to the funky beat!
I am with you in Scotland, time to be free,
I am with you in Scotland, we share a common ancestry!
I am with you in scotland, last words to James Connolly.
Who was executed under the orders of Kind George, Easter 1916.
“Why should I murder a German worker for a British King, when I have more in common with my German Comrade…”
A Marxist from Glasgow, that’s not all that he said,
‘The Great only seem Great as we are on our knees, Rise Up’.
‘Sure that’s mad Mad Ted’.
(Needs a polish, and a nice heavy bass).”
