Wide boys, wide boys, wide boys, Born with hearts of Lothian Wide boys, we were wide boys, Born with hearts of Lothian Wide boys, we were wide boys, These hearts of Lothian.
It's six o'clock in the tower blocks Stalagmites of culture shock And the trippers of the light fantastic, Bow down, hoe-down Spray their pheromones on this perfume uniform.
And anarchy smiles in the Royal Mile And they're waiting on the slyboys, flyboys, wideboys Rooting, tooting cowboys Lucky little ladies at the watering holes They'll score the Friday night goals.
I was born with a heart of Lothian I was born with a heart of Lothian With a heart of Lothian
I was born with a heart of Lothian, With a heart of Lothian.

Dave from Cardiff, WalesThe Heart of Lothian is a landmark on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, which now stands in the place where witches and heretics were tried and then subsequently burned at the stake. It's now a mosaic painting and according to local superstition exists as a symbol that - if you spit on it - will bring you good luck and will guarantee that you live long enough to return to Edinburgh should you ever leave the city
