Danny Boy

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

From glen to glen and down the mountain side

The summer’s gone and all the roses fading

Tis you, tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow

Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow

For I’ll be here, in sunshine and in shadow

O Danny boy, O Danny boy, I love you so.


Land of Hope and Glory

Land of hope and glory, mother of the free

How shall we extol thee who are born of thee?

Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set

God who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet

God who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet.


Loch Lomond

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonny braes

Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond

Where me and my true love were ever wont to go

On the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomond.

Oh you’ll take the high road and I’ll take the low road

And I’ll be in Scotland before you

But me and my true love will never meet again

On the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomond.


Rule Britannia

When Britain first at Heaven’s command arose from out the azure main

Arose, arose, arose from out the azure main

This was the charter, the charter of the land

And guardian angels sang this strain.

Rule Britannia, Britannia rules the waves

Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
