En Route

Embodiment of the nation

And our story

Ending now in days of fitting glory

A hearse upon the highway

Leaves Balmoral

We follow every mile

Attentive choral


Final journey

To final resting place

But many calls to make

All for our sake

Aberdeen and Edinburgh

Sun on Scotland shines

Then the flight to London town

Bow bell London chimes


People all in file

And filing through

Will come to say a thank you

I knew you

You spoke for us and spoke to us

And reminded us to be

Moderate and temperate

Fiat – let it be
