I Love To Wear The Kilt

You can listen to this song here

by Andy Stewart with The Jimmy Blue Scottish Dance Band - 1972

Well now, I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.
I love to wear the kilt because it's bright to see
The bonnie tartan plaidie swinging up above my knee.
I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.

A lot of folks will tell you that it's just the way I'm built
When it comes to fads and fashions I'm a Scotsman to the hilt
But the lassies all look neater, aye the lassies all look sweeter
And life is much completer when I wear my kilt.

I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.
I love to wear the kilt because it's bright to see
The bonnie tartan plaidie swinging up above my knee.
I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.


Now when I am far abroad, you'd never lose me in the crowd
Tho' I'm wee I stand up head and shoulders oh so proud
And the folks all think 'thegither' he is from the land of 'heather'
So I 'gaither' up my voice and then I sing out loud .....

Oh-Ho! I love to wear the kilt .. 'cause it's right for me.
I love to wear the kilt because it's bright to see
The bonnie tartan plaidie swinging up above my knee.
I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.

[Eeee ..... Heugh !]

Well now I used to court a winsome lass but I cudnae score at all
I wooed her in a love-elly suit but och she wudnae fall
So one day I donned the tartan an' I told her we wur partin'
But her heart wis broke in two and she began to bawl ....

Oh I love you in the kilt because it's right for you
(My lass had no idea what a kilt would do)
I love your tartan plaidie and I promise to be true
I love you in the kilt because it's right for you

Well now I have a wee bit laddie and he's only two-year old
And the first day he was walking was a wonder to behold
He did not look so happy as he toddled in his nappy
So he turned to his mummy and began to bawl ....

I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.
I love to wear the kilt because it's bright to see
The bonnie tartan plaidie swinging up above my knee.
I love to wear the kilt because it's right for me.

Ay, I love to wear the kilt because it's right ... for ... me
