"Heart of Lothian" as written by Derek William Dick, Mark Kelly, Ian Mosley, Steve Rothery and Pete Trewavas....
Wide boys, wide boys, wide boys,
Born with hearts of Lothian
Wide boys, we were wide boys,
Born with hearts of Lothian
Wide boys, we were wide boys,
These hearts of Lothian.

It's six o'clock in the tower blocks
Stalagmites of culture shock
And the trippers of the light fantastic,
Bow down, hoe-down
Spray their pheromones on this perfume uniform.

And anarchy smiles in the Royal Mile
And they're waiting on the slyboys, flyboys, wideboys
Rooting, tooting cowboys
Lucky little ladies at the watering holes
They'll score the Friday night goals.

I was born with a heart of Lothian
I was born with a heart of Lothian
With a heart of Lothian

I was born with a heart of Lothian,
With a heart of Lothian.

    General Commentcant believe that nobody commented on this one. It has maybe one of the most melodic hooks in the history of Rock.

    Lothian is the county/district in which Edinburgh is. Saying you have a heart of Lothian is just saying where you come from. Also, the 'Heart of Lothian', full name 'Heart of Midlothian', is a mozaic heart inlaid into the sidewalk halfway up the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, the nearest city to Fish's hometown of Dalkeith. The heart is traditionally spat into when you walk past it, and is a symbol of local
    pride.
