Today's Song: Nessie, by the Real MacKenzies

The Real MacKenzies are my favorite drunken kilt-and-leather-jacket-wearing Scottish punk rock with bagpipes band from Canada. That about sums it up. My favorite song of t heirs is Nessie, about the Loch Ness monster. You can actually find their stuff on iTunes, and there's a live video of them playing this song on Youtube, so here we go!

Nessie - The Real MacKenzies (live)

This actually has remarkably good audio for a live concert Youtube video, but even the studio recording of this song is hard to understand. With the live version linked above you've got no hope of following the lyrics, so here they are:

Away up in Scotland is the place that's best
Is a Scottish fjord that they call Loch Ness
The loch is so deep there ain't nobody know
And deep within the loch is a bonnie bonnie creature
A long time ago there was a people who knew
The water and the land and all life is sacred.
Everybody treated Nessie with respect
Nobody bothered her swimming in the sea so,
Swim round so proud and beautiful.

Yeah she squiggled and she squoggled
And she frolicked in the sunshine
She swam into another serpent and they fell in love
With the ocean and the highlands and the stars up above
Why go away there were no reasons
Time rolled on about 10,000 years
The ancient people of the loch began to disappear
Some were wiped out, some moved away
Who could tell that the end was near so,

Go now, get down, and swim away
But don't you forget to return on a sunny day
Come on, come on, oh Nessie come on
Come on, come on, Loch Ness is where you belong
So come on, oh Nessie come on, Loch Ness is where you belong.

Now the people of the world look down in Loch Ness
And they noticed something big and bumpy swimming all around
And the newspapers said, "she couldn't be found"
So they got the radiomen and the television crew
Run Nessie run they're all after you
Now they've got the helicopters and submarines too
If you let them capture you I know what they'll do
We'll have to pay to see you in an underwater zoo, No!

Go now, get down, and swim away
But don't you forget to return on a sunny day
Come on, come on, oh Nessie come on
Come on, come on, Loch Ness is where you belong
So come on, oh Nessie come on, Loch Ness is where you belong.
