    The sun had been up for a couple of hours,
    Covered the ground with a layer of gold.
    Spirits were high and the raining had stopped,
    The larder was low, But boy that wasn't all.
    Eleventh Earl of Mar
    Couldn't get them very far.
    Daddy! Oh Daddy, You Promised.

    Out on the road in the direction of Perth,
    Backwards and forwards in a circle they went.
    Found a city half open and ready to greet,
    The conquering heroes, with blisters on their feet.
    Eleventh Earl of Mar
    Somehow got them all this far.
    Daddy! You Promised, You Promised.

    See the Stewart all dressed up
    He's got eyes in the back of his head.
    Who came in a cockleshell boat
    That could only just float,
    Couldn't even lift a sword.
    Dressed too fine and smelling of wine.

    Daddy you've got to go!
    Here comes the bishop all dressed up
    He's gonna bless you if you're ready to pay.
    One wave of his funny old stick,
    There's a band of light across your eyes.

    Waited a week still they hadn't appeared,
    That glorious timing that everyone feared.
    So they're riding along on the crest of a wave,
    They're headed for London, And that will be their grave.
    Eleventh Earl of Mar
    Well he couldn't get them down that far
    Daddy! I'm waiting, I'm waiting

    Time to go to bed now
    Never seems too keen
    To be a guest now
    In a house of dreams

    Flying from a hillside
    Beckoning the trees
    A sailboat's awning
    Mimicking the breeze

    I'm fighting gravity falling
    My Daddy won't let them get me
    A voice screams seems to be calling
    The face turns features are burning.

    Daddy, you've got to go!
    See the fifteen going by,
    Tell the Lairds and the Lords
    They're running backwards today,
    And once again you stand alone.

    Bury your memories bury your friends,
    Leave it alone for a year or two.
    Till the stories go hazy and the legends come true,
    Then do it again. Some Things never end.
    Eleventh Earl of Mar
    Won't be going very far.
    You Promised, You Promised, You Promised.
    DADDY!
