GUEST,Nick Kelly Lyr Req: The Eskimo Republic (17) Lyr Add: THE ESKIMO REPUBLIC 17 Nov 01

I transcribed these lyrics off of the Eskimo Republic video and I know I have some of the lyrics wrong (due to Jimmy Ross' Scottish accent or maybe it's my ears). Any help...Ewan McVicar are you out there?

Thanks in advance.


Now good fortunes wheel let its balance (???) roond,
A Nation's rise that yince was doon
So it's time to sing a rebel tune
For the Eskimo Republic

Where there is nay Class and there is nay boss
Nay Kings nor Queens and damn the loss
And we get boozed up for a six-month's toss
In the Eskimo Republic

When they mak a law sure they all agree
For they all sit on the committee
And they got nay Lords nor nay MPs
In the Eskimo Republic

Now the Eskimos they live in peace
And they've never joined in an arms race
And you'll find nay trace o' a Polaris Base
In the Eskimo Republic

When a Eskie wain gaes tae the school
They sit up nice on their Eskie stool
And they sing and they laugh and they learn the rules
O' the Eskimo Republic

Now their fitball games, they're all clean and fair
And … (can't understand) with the fitball players
Cause the park's patrolled by Polar bears
In the Eskimo Republic

Well they flee aboot in their wee kayaks
And stick harpoons in tae whale's back
Then they cut them up in tae nice wee snacks
In the Eskimo Republic

Now the Eskimos they are no like you
Every Eskimo's got their ane igloo
And their mother law got their igloos too
In the Eskimo Republic

When an Eskimo sings an Eskie song
He gies it that really auld Eskie twang
And his favorite one is I belong
Tae the Eskimo Republic

Now the Eskimos they are gay and gallus
And their ig-aloos are their ane wee palace
Because they’re all lit up be the Aurora Borealis
In the Eskimo Republic
