Moving on Song

Born in the middle of the afternoon
In a horse-drawn wagon on the old A-5;
The big twelve-wheelers shook me bed,
‘You can’t stop here,’ the policeman said,

Chorus: ‘You’d better get born in someplace else,
So move along, get along!
Move along, get along!
Go! Move! Shift!’

Born in the tattie-lifting time
In an auld bow-tent near a tattie field;
The farmer said, ‘The wark’s all done,
It’s time that you was moving on, (chorus)

Born on a common near a building site,
Where the ground is rutted by the trailers’ wheels;
The local people said to me,
‘You’ll lower the price of property, (chorus)
