The Lyrics

I don't usually do requests, but Stuart McArthur had a 'suggestion'
On a day like today in ye ol' Scottish Loch
A monster would surface and pose
And they named that ol' Loch where the monster appeared
With a girl sounding name I suppose

Now they scour that ol' Scottish Loch
They shoot movies and give it renown
And I sing of ye ol' Scottish Loch
Where Nessie hesitates to be found

Now ye Ol' Scottish Loch has found fame in the world
As a water filled deep mystery
Now they pester and prod for this story to prove
To show it to all on TV

Yes they scour that ol' Scottish Loch
They'll shoot movies though we always frown
Well I sing of ye ol' Scottish Loch
Where Nessie hesitates to be found

In that ol' Scottish Loch, be it beast or a myth
Tourist trap now a goldmine
For the fools see the Loch that has beauty and grace
As naught but a stop worth their time

And they photograph that Scottish Loch
Hoping they will catch glimpse of the beast
And they wait by ye ol' Scottish Loch
While Nessie is most likely deceased

In that ol' Scottish Loch in year five sixty-five
A saint did exclaim she was there
But we'll call her a fake though she won't go away
Cause they sight her now every year

And they flock to that Scottish Loch
As they drive this lore into the ground
And I sing of ye ol' Scottish Loch
Where Nessie hesitates to be found

you took the ball and ran with it. Burns would be proud. great lingo. 555's for history alone.

ah! - I'm honoured that you responded so wittily, Tim, to my plea, although my theory still stands: Nessie was Scotland's last drowning elephant, luckily caught on camera just as her trunk surfaced for her tragic last gulp of air - 555

Tim: Like Eliot Ness, you are untouchable. Stuart: Does this mean that St. Andrew drove the elephants out of Scotland, like St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland?

Dè? Chan eil Gàidhlig ann? A h-ìochdais! Mo chànan dhùthchasach! Am beò no marbh i? Mas e do thoil e, bi beò 'n àite fo bàs! 'S math seo, còig còig còig! 'S dòcha bhitheadh Raibeart agus Niseag pròiseil... am bitheadh? Anndra, stiùireadh na h-ailbheanan às an t-Alba... 's èibhinn sin! Mar sin tha sin mar a thachair dhan dh'ailbheanan! :) Ach Niseag... ciamer a mhair i 'san Loch Nis? (What? There's no Gaelic? O goodness! My native language! Is she alive or dead. If it is thine will, be alive instead of under death! Good is this, five five five! Perhaps Robert and Nessie would be proud... would they be? Andrew, driving the elephants from Scotland... that's amusing! So that's what happened to the elephants! But Nessie... how did she survive in Lake nis?)

Oh dear...when/where were you talking about Scottish Elephants?? I am reminded a sweet Scottish Elephant I used to know...his name was Duncan...he lived on TOTTM...*sob* Talk about opening up an old wound and pouring salt in it! =(

Good one! That is one song that seems to invite parodies. I wrote a parody to The Old Rugged Cross Myself. I hate to be a "Party Pooper", but the Loch Ness monster is a popular myth that even scientists are trying to keep alive. Even an episode of Nova dealt with that subject and wouldn't come to any logical conclusion.

Great read, Tim. Excellent parody! 555 and more.

Talk to the hand, 2Eagle! Nessie, the last Scottish Elephant, does TOO exist, and one day she will rise from her murky depths, and trample non-believers! (or at least spurt you with water)
