We eest tae ca ma sister 'Mud' and she works in the fast lane sooth o Huntly so I ca'd the tune 'Mud Flies'. I wrote this tune after taking my sister to the airport. She was returning to her job in the financial sector and air pollution of London. I was thinking of the speed at which people move in cities and the noise of typewriters and filing cabinets. When younger we called my sister 'Mud'.
