Sung by Andy Stewart

A Gordon for me, a Gordon for me,
If you're no' a Gordon, you're nae use to me,
The Black Watch are braw, the Seaforths an' a',
But the cocky wee Gordon's the pride o' them a'.

I'm Georgie McKay of the HLI,
I'm fond o' the lassies and a drappie forbye
One day when out walking I chanced to see,
A bonnie wee lass wi' a glint in her ee'.
Says I tae the lassie will you walk for a while,
I'll buy ye a bonnet and we'll do it in style,
My kilt is McKenzie o' the HLI,
She looked at me shyly and said wi' a sigh:
"A Gordon for me, a Gordon for me,
If you're no' a Gordon, you're nae use to me,
The Black Watch are braw, the Seaforths an' a',
But the cocky wee Gordon's the pride o' them a'."

Jock MacKay
Sung by Andy Stewart

Oh my, Jock Mackay,
Tell me who is the girl that you'll marry?
Is it Molly or Clare from Maddison Square,
Or bonnie young Jean from Glengarry?

Oh my name is MacKay from the island of Skye,
And just how I left there I'll never know why.
There were girls by the score whom I'd longed to adore,
But the lassies back hame hae a gleam in their eye.
Oh they call me Mack-ey when I stroll down Broadway.
That's the price that I pay for my roaming.
But I'm going home to rest in the land I love best,
And the welcome I'll hear when I'm homing ....

(It'll be) Oh my, Jock Mackay,
Tell me who is the girl that you'll marry?
Is it Molly or Clare from Maddison Square,
Or bonnie young Jean from Glengarry?
And it's Oh my, Jock Mackay,
Tell me who is the girl that you'll marry?
Is it Molly or Clare from Maddison Square,
Or bonnie young Jean from Glengarry?

Is it Molly or Clare from Maddison Square,
Or bonnie young Jean from Glengarry?
