She Speaks with Rank and Roses

Gleann Comhan.

Occasion in the village hall, she speaks with rank and roses,
So high above them all;
What could they do?
He struts with dog and gun, they scramble through a heather hell,
Beat the ground until they run;
What could they do?
A little respect would have helped them through.

Rank and Roses, Dougie MacLean.
