Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone know the words to this?

    Begins

    "H" stands for honour
    "L" for liberty
    "i" for independence
    Glasgow's own are we
    We're proud to wear the tartan
    Why should it die?
    We're proud to wear the tartan of the HLI


    There's another song which I think is called "All Scotsmen"

    Includes

    "All Scotsmen, every one a Scotsman
    Buffallo Bill frae Maryhill
    He's never fought, and he never will".

    Google's no help and it's driving me nuts.
     
  2. Bloody scag 'eds.....all of 'em.
     
  3. If you're going to stigmatise us at least show some imagination.

    "H stands for heroin
    "L" for laudenum
    "i" for intravenous
    We take it up the bum
    We're happy when we're blootered
    Dangerous otherwise
    We subsist on a diet comprised
    O' wine and mutton pies

    Oh, the HLI, oh the HLI..................



    Or something like that :D
     
  4. Why? You'd not understand it if it were sophisticated.

    Oh, the HLI oh the HLI
    The Boys fae Glesga who never say die
    There's Piper McDougal frae Auchenshuggle
    Who'll tell ye a tale o' the bold HLI.


    Can't remember the rest, it's been a while since I served alongside any weegies.

    Bonnie Mary as taught to me by a certain Highland Regiment:

    Hey! wee man wi the big stick in yer hand
    Oh, wont you play a simple melody?
    A song to remind me o' the girl I left behind me
    Wont you play a simple melody?
    For ah'm comin' back Bonnie Mary
    Ah'm comin home to you
    Ah'm comin back in the good old summer time
    When the bagpipes are playin for auld lang syne
    I know she will be waiting
    To greet me with a smile
    And we'll roam the hills together
    Among the purple heather
    Bonnie Mary o' Argyll.

    We held a grand procession as we marched before the Queen
    Ten thousand kilted warriors - the likes ye've never seen
    They thought that we were Zulus from the lands beyond the Nile
    Until they heard us singin' Bonnie Mary o' Argyll
    For we're a' Scotsmen everyone's a Scotsman
    Buffalo Bill frae Maryhill
    Who's never worked and never will
    Aye, man! believe it if ye can
    We were Hielan' Jocks
    In tartan socks
    Scotsmen Every wan.

    For we're a shower o' bastards
    Bastards are we
    We'd rather fuck than fight for li-ber-ty
    We're happy, yes we're happy
    When we're Jocks on the Job, we're happy
    We don't give a fuck
    For the syph or the pox
    Our motto is 'spread disease'

    For we've all got venereal disease
    We've all got venereal disease
    We don't give a fuck
    For the syph or the pox
    Our motto is 'spread disease'.
