Clan 9 from Outer Space

We always knew the Scots were different, special...and now we know why. Join us as we delve into this mystery, deep as Loch Ness, dense as haggis, complicated as bagpipes, as the Zongo Session Players whip up a quirky, cosmic Highland reel!

Did ye ever think the Scots were a wee bit strange?
There's a reason for it, which can now be explained.
We solved this curious Scottish mystery
By digging up stuff from ancient history

Long before Earthlings learned to fly
Great starships came to the Isle of Skye
Brought women and men from distant stars
With their kids and a couple of plesiosaurs

From Andromeda to Edinborough
Clan 9 from outer space
From the Pleiades to the Hebrides
Clan 9 from outer space
From the Milky Way to Stornaway
Clan 9 from outer space
These Scotsmen once were spacemen
Their tartans came from outer space

They blended in with great success
From the Mull of Kintyre to Inverness.
If you look around at a Scottish festival
You can't even tell who's extraterrestrial.

So trace back your Scottish family tree.
Your great-great-great might have been an E.T.
And if that's the case for me and you
Then it might explain a thing or two.

From Andromeda to Edinborough
Clan 9 from outer space
From the Pleiades to the Hebrides
Clan 9 from outer space
From the Milky Way to Stornaway
Clan 9 from outer space
These spacemen became Scotsmen
The MacAliens from outer space

From Andromeda to Edinborough
From the Pleiades to the Hebrides
From the Milky Way to Stornaway
These Scotsmen once were spacemen
Clan number 9 which came from outer space
