03. The Queen's Gait

The man's the man fitivir - bit thir's still them that strut 'n stare for a' that. Some are better at it than ithirs and some are jist fouk daein a job. This tune began meanin tae be aff takkin 'n coorse bit ended up bein sympathetic. It's ca'd 'The Queen's Gait' and a subtitle micht be 'Lizzie's funny shoogle'.

As Robert Burn's noted the 'upper echelons' of society tend to strut and stare and feel self important whether or not they are in fact efficient and effective. This tune began with the intention of making fun of the royalty but ended being sympathetic.
