The Lyrics

Donna vs Teddy: The Musical
Act IIa Scene 1
Donna muses about some dudes that amuse her
Men with nerve, dudes in skirts, pins upon their kilts
Men with verve, dudes from firths, flitting there with lilts

Is she peeking? Eyes know thing shows
Is it creeping? Yes, bare-ly grows
What she's viewing: men in skirts by pubs

Men with nerve, dudes in skirts, pipe at castle fairs
Men with verve, dudes from firths, plying bags of air

Is she reeling? Yes, she drinks so
Is she splitting? Yes, bet-ter go
What she's ruing: many servings chugged

Fine swinging stud, struttin' in knee-highs, in need of tea
So proud and stately, his flappy pouch, it makes him grouch
Clan guy hikes to Glasgow, pipin' swell tunes

Men with nerve, dudes in skirts, hair below's not waxed
Men with verve, dudes from firths, thongs for when attacked

New shoes, hiker? Yes, my shoes irk
Would you suffer? Yes, my foot hurts
What these shoes mean: men in skirts cry, "Snug"

Men emerge, dudes that flirt
Men with nerve, dudes in skirts
Men with verve, dudes from firths

Men with nerve, dudes in skirts, suidhe gu socair *
Men with verve, dudes from firths, sporran a 'crochadh *

Gàidhlig? Tha, tha sin ceart *
Bho chaolas? Tha sin fìor *
Carson a tha sgiortaichean orra? *

Men are sure, dudes that flirt
Men with nerve, dudes in skirts
Men with verve, dudes from firths
* Translations:

suidhe gu socair = sit quietly
sporran a 'crochadh = purse hanging
Gàidhlig? Tha, tha sin ceart = Gaelic? Yes, that's right
Bho chaolas? Tha sin fìor = From a strait? That is true
Carson a tha sgiortaichean orra? = Why are they wearing skirts?
