You can find it on the web in Klingon, will that do?

It was so authentically rooted in Scots tradition that it could have sprung from no other folk culture in the world.

The tune is a variant of the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Verdi's "Nabucco".

It's hard to credit W. Gordon Smith's arselicking over this one when he'd written a much better song himself, "Come by the Hills".
