OOR NEW SCHOOL, AGAIN

A see the schools’ been built again

The second time since I don’t know when

The first time should have been enough

If the folk wi’ the money had come up wi

the stuff

A see the schools’ been built again

Wi diggers and... wi yellie men

Puttin up fence and barrier tape

Ta keep us oot for oor ain sake

A see the schools’ been built again

We bricks and blocks and large steel frame

Hope it looks like a school this time

And no a cremi. Or a ‘nickel and dime’

A see the schools’ been built again

Bairns being decanted to another hame’

The teachers stress going aff the scale

I hope this time they dinna fail
