Who so base as be a slave? - Let him turn, and flea!

12 Гей, шотландці! Заклик Роберта Брюса до війська перед Беннокбернською битвою Гей, шотландці! В бій не раз Воллес, Брюс водили вас; Знов ударив грізний час - до борні, брати! То ж не жарт, шотландський гарт, Докажіть, чого він варт: Наближається Едвард, З ним ідуть кати. Хто злякався ворогів, Хто від жаху затремтів, Рабськи вмерти захотів - Може утекти.

14 My Heart's In The Highlands (Robert Burns) My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here, My heart's in the Highlands a-chasing the deer - A-chasing the wild deer, and following the roe; My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go. Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North, The birth place of Valour, the country of Worth; Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, The hills of the Highlands for ever I love.

15 Мое серце в верховині Мое серце в верховині Моє серце в верховині і душа моя, Моя дума в верховині соколом буя, Моя мрія в гори лине наздогін вітрам, Моє серце в верховині, де б не був я сам. Будь здорова, верховино, любий рідний край, Честі й слави батьківщино, вольності розмай! Хоч іду я на чужину, повернуся знов, Моє серце в верховині і моя любов.
