W:Now Sark runs over the Solway sands, and Tweed runs to the ocean W:To mark where England's province stands - such a parcel of rogues in a nation! W: W:What force or guile could not subdue through many warlike ages, W:Is wrought now by cowards few for hireling traitors' wages. W:The English steel we could disdain, secure in valor's station, W:But English gold has been our bane - such a parcel of rogues in a nation! W: W:Oh would ere I had seen the day that treason thus could sell us, W:My old grey head had lain in clay with Bruce and loyal Wallace. W:But pith and power till my last hour, I'll make this declaration, W:We're bought and we're sold for English gold - such a parcel of rogues in a nation!
