Aye an' a bit of mackerel, settler rack and down
Ran it down by the home, and I flew
Well, it slapped me and I flopped it down in the shade
And I cried, cried, cried

The tear had fallen down he had taken, never back to raise
And then cried Mary, and took out wi' your Claymore
Right outta a' pocket, I ran down, down by the mountain side
Battlin' the fiery horde that was falling around the feet

"Never!," he cried, "Never shall ye get me alive
Ye rotten hound of the burnie crew!"
Well I snatched fer the blade and a Claymore cut and thrust
And I fell down before him round his feet

Aye, a roar he cried fray the bottom of 'is heart
That I would nay fall but as dead
Dead as I can by why' feet, d'ya ken?
And the wind cried back

    General CommentI think the above translation is wrong in many places. Most people just assume it's mostly jibberish. I think this an account, in 16th century english, of the Battle of Langside where Mary Queen of Scots was defeated. When you start with that assumption, you can decipher this into something that makes alot more sense. For example, before battle, the Scotsman of the day would "tuck up" -- tuck their long shirts under their belts. That was the birth of the kilt! So where they translate "took out wi' your Claymore", if you listen close it sounds more like "tucked up with a Claymore". By the way, a Claymore was a broadsword used in the period of the Battle of Langside. Anyway, my whole translation, with notes, is at angelfire.com/home/FloydWaters/pinkfloyd/….
