If you're strolling around Auld Reekie And you're wandering up by the Mound, If you just take a trip doon the High Street You'll come to a heart in the ground It's the centre of this dear old city It's a sort of a wishing well too But you don't have to drink You don't have to think I'll tell what you've got to do - CHORUS: At the Heart of Midlothian outside St Giles (twice) It's the one lucky spot That Edinburgh's got That will change all your cares into smiles Things look ugly today, Make a wish Pht! they'll be gay Just like Hans Christian Andersen's duck The Heart of Midlothian will bring you luck. Now you've heard of the luck of the Irish And the power of the old Blarney Stone White Heather brings luck in the Highlands But I've got a spot of my own It's not at the famed Monte Carlo And it's not at the Fountains of Rome No it's up the Royal Mile I'll do it in style In the city that I call my home. CHORUS: At the Heart of Midlothian outside St Giles (twice) So if you're passing by Just go Pht! have a try It will change all your cares into smiles If you play at the game Just remember the name It's the same as the team with the Cup The Heart of Midlothian will cheer you up (in coda) The Heart of Midlothian will bring you luck.
