"Both Sides of the Tweed" as written by and Dick Gaughan....
What`s the spring breathing jasmine and rose
What`s the summer with all its gay train
What`s the splendor of autumn to those
Who`ve bartered their freedom for gain.

Let the love of our land`s sacred rights
To the love of our people succeed
Let friendship and honor unite
And flourish on both sides of the Tweed.

No sweetness the senses can cheer
Which corruption and bribery bind
No brightness the sun can e`er clear
For honor`s the sum of the mind.

Let virtue distinguish the brave
Place riches in lowest degree
Think them poorest who can be a slave
Them richest who dare to be free.
