Scotland Calling Scotland Calling

A Caledonian celebration.



What are we going to do now?

Ticking off their list, they said is this man on the broo?
Working for the cooncil
They put up a poster saying we're gonna catch you
Working for the cooncil

We will teach our twisted speech,
to the school leavers.
We will train our brown-nosed men,
to be blind achievers.

The Job Centre said go - But I say no, no, no.
I'm not working for the cooncil
No man born with a living soul
Can be working for the cooncil

Moan about the roads to local government toads
Go ahead and lose it
Be furious or stressed, get in the local press
You know they can't refuse it.

The voices in your head are calling
I'm annoyed, I'm gonna start bawling
The Evening News will print my angry picture

I'll stand beside a dangerous pothole
Or get their faces on a bog roll
It's my benefits and fags they want to steal


You grow up and you calm down
You're working for the cooncil
You admire Gordon Brown
You're working for the cooncil

So you got someone to boss around
It makes you feel big now
You're put in charge of wheelie bins
You made your first kill now

In these days of fiddling expenses
Working for the cooncil
But lately one or two have been put back on the broo
Not working for the cooncil

working for the cooncil
Ha! Move along move along
working for the cooncil
Nothing to see here

They're working hard in Harris I heard
Working hard in Fraserburgh
working for the cooncil
working for the cooncil
Ha! Move along move along
Begging at the town hall

and I've given away no pamphlets
Who's in Barnton now?
