NOTE! This track is from the rehearsals!!


LYRICS

Get a move on - (Mark Knopfler)

Now it’s safe to say
we Scot’s are realistic
Never have been known
for being over optimistic
‘Till this thing is done and dusted
we won’t get unduly flustered
Neither overcome with joy
nor over pessimistic
We are counting all our blessings
are we not?
when we think of all the good things
we have got
and of what we’re
going to  get
but havnae got as yet
though we can see that
It’s going to be a lot

So get used to hurry up
heids doon arses up
Ask for a Tuna max
Find some rubber
Hit our tracks
There’s nothing to improve on
Get a move on
Pull yu socks up
better join up
Get a wind up
Get a sail up
better get your shoes on
Get a move on
Get a move on
Get a move on

We thought a trip
To Spain or France
would be ok
Wi a wee advance
to see us on our way
We thought it more or less
Was signed upon the dotted line
So what’s it that you
Are actually tryin to say?
We’ve the tickets fur the flight
We’re flyin out next Thursdy night
And we thought we’d have
Some spendin money handy
It’s going to come as a surprise
When you look into their eyes
and tell them
No ye Cannae go-o
to Alicante’

So get used to hurry up
heids doon arses up
Ready steady
Get a grip
Gee up Benny
Crack the whip
There’s nothing to improve on
Get a move on
Pull yu socks up
better join up
Get a wind up
Get a sail up
better get your shoes on
Get a move on
Get a move on
Get a move on
Get a move on
Get a move on
Get a move on

Much better when seen at the show in context and with the whole cast making moves in time with the music.  Really a lot of movement and energy on stage at this one.
