There is only one song I am aware of in the entire world that has my name in it. And this version by Eddi Reader (of Fairground Attraction and 1980s Brit Awards fame etc) is beautiful. The chorus, by Robert Burns, exists in fragment only, so Reader wrote the rest. I’d like this at my funeral.
Oh the lights in this city are like diamonds
Aye the streetlamps, the signs and the cars
Though its bright in this city, what are diamonds
When they’re turning out all of our stars?
Also, I’m trying to learn Gaelic. Don’t ask me why because I don’t even know.. So far I can say “How are you?” (in both formal and informal), “I’m fine”, “That was really good” “Cheers” and identify myself. So far I’m thinking “Cheers” (which I knew already) will be the most useful out of a very un-useful almost-dead language. I should really go back to my original intention of improving my Spanish or French but Fuck It.
PS “Leezie” means “pretty” or “beautiful” in Scots. It does not mean lazy. No matter how true that may be.
