The Bard of Banff

Save Oor Maternity!

They want tae shut,

the Banff maternity unit doon

an’ send a’ oor wifies tae Canmore,

or Cowtown.
We’re nae hae’ing it,

we Banffite’s will stand an’ unite,

we winna gie up oor maternity,

nae withoot a fight!
The sisters of St Martha’s,

Will be turning in their graves,

if the Banff maternity unit ,

we dinna save.
The Banff is whaur we wir born,

the Banff is oor hame,

tae bring oor kids intae this world ony-where else,

jist widnae be the same!
Stanley Bruce [ Adapted]
