Flower of Scotland

Voting No on 18th September? Obviously the current words of Flower of Scotland will be unsingable without irony klaxons going into overdrive if there's a No vote.  Here's Better Together's re-edit of the lyrics:

Oh flower of Scotland,
When will we see your like again?
That fought and died for,
Your wee bit hill and glen.
That stood against him,
Proud Edward's army,
And sent him homeward,
To think again.

Those hill are bare now,
And Autumn leaves lie thick and still.
For land that is lost now,
And Hope so cruelly felled.
That cringed before him,
ProudScotBut ®™ Ali's Army,
And sent him Southward,
To trough again.

Those days are past now,
And in the past They must remain.
But we'll never rise now,
And be the nation again,
That stood against him,
Proud Edward's army,
And sent him homeward,
To think again.

Oh flower of Scotland,
We'll never see your like again.
That keiched your breeks in
Your wee bit hill and glen.
That cringed before him,
ProudScotBut ®™ Ali's Army,
And sent him Southward,
To trough again.
