The Most Amazing Thing Of All

"Songs From Scotland" (1991 Greentrax CDTRAX 045)

Exciting days in Scotland, a helluva year
Devolution and Dolly, Beguiling smiling Tony Blair
Harassing times for Clinton, Ireland on the mend
But the most amazing thing of all
Scotland qualified again

We qualified for France, our season in the sun
Please boys please won't you get us through round one
We always think we'll win it though we're certified insane
But Scotland qualified again

The Indians go atomic, the cowboys reply
Asteroids advancing, Telly Tubbies say "Bye Bye"
Jimmy Shand is ninety, he's always looked the same
But the most amazing thing of all
Scotland qualified again

Hale Bop and Hong Kong have both gone home
Goram and Gazza, a million pals and all alone
Ginger leaves the Spice rack, it's really really a shame
But the most amazing thing of all
Scotland qualified again

Bring on Brazil, Norway as well
We'll murder Morocco, will we bloody hell!
It seems the other countries have all got better teams
BUT this time we'll win it, we can dream, dream ...
