It was th’ tide o’ kings an’ kingly men,
Whe’ the worl’ was young
It was a tide o’ greatness,
O’ great men, an’ great deeds,
An’ monumental moments.
Thay shook th’ pillars o’ heaven
whin thay traivelt upon th’ land
Th’ winds stood fast in thair presence
When the great ones stepped from their pavilions.
Thair voices raised were heard by all
Wi’ thair fists raised thay commanded the clouds
One and all shered in thair glory
Thay came ‘n’ thay teuk
They spread their great fortunes across the seas
Wi’ the constant star to guide them
Thay returned, nae as men, bit as legends
