Suffering From Scottishness
Suffering from Scottishness - Dumb Instrument Great song - there's a serious movement to make it our national anthem. The video's worth seeking out, too. C Am C It was windy, trees were bendy I was staring at my knee. I was in Brighton, in a taxi, Taxi driver said to me E F C What's wrong pal, you look depressed F G C I said I'm suffering from Scottishness. C Oh for Christ's sake, I like shortcake And when I'm happy it feels fake. I dream of tartan around Dumbarton I think I've failed when I'm only starting F C Oh yes I must confess F G C That I'm suffering from Scottishness C There was one day, felt like Sunday In the toilet of a bar And the gadgie in the mirror He says who do you think you are F C He says you're nothing, you're just a mess F G C You're an advert for Scottishness. C Taxi driver he stopped the car He marched me straight to the nearest pub His arm around me he did his best To make me see that my life is blessed F C So I lamped him wi' ma gless F G C So now he's suffering from Scottishness.
