Proclaiming on Scotland

Would the Scottish rock duo
The Proclaimers
"walk 500 miles"
and then "500 more"

(and if they hadn't been looking
to make the song
a hit in America

it would've been
"805 kilometers"
and "805 more")

to fall down at the door
of an independent Scotland?

If donating 10,000 pounds
to the Yes campaign counts

then yes

they will wake up
they will go out
they will get drunk
and they will haver
(babble foolishly towards)

before coming home to
their beloved country.
