SONG FOR SCOTTISH WOMEN'S FOOTBALL

WRITTEN & COMPOSED BY SHARON MARTIN
We’ve marched a thousand milesFought hard for our rightsThrough history we’ve played our handThe great women of this land
Heroism we have seenMary Barbour’s Rent ArmyJane Haining, Righteous Among Nations
Cos we’re your doctors, lawyers, mothers, footballers, First Minister, Poet LaureateWe’re on the move and I’m telling youThe glass ceiling’s going, we’re coming through
So rise up, eyes up, take the stagePlay your game, don’t be afraidYou’re a work of art, our Joans of ArcAlways be proud of who you are
Girl, you’ve got to hold your head up highDon’t let this moment pass you byYou can be, anything you believe you can beGirl, this world is waiting just for youGo on shine and live your truthYou can be, anything you believe you can be
So let’s boldly build new roadsSports stars and role models3 silvers made Olympic goldKatherine’s legacy we’ll follow
And it’s up to all of usTo stand up for what we loveFeminism is an energyOf heart and soul, humility
So husbands, fathers, sons and brothersUnited, we’ll fight for each otherNo country is more fittingTo inspire the world we live in
We made penicillin, television, steam engines, educated thinkingSo what’s equality?To the pioneers of history!
