Listen to what happens to "Star Spangled Banner" more often than not.. when the wrong person sings it, which is most of the time.
In theory, I agree. In reality, no one knows the 3rd verse of Flower of Scotland, Hardly anyone knows past "Scots Wha Hae wi Wallace Bled" and no one knows ANY of the words to STB.

We have a national dance to all three which consists of mumblin and shuffling, whilst occasionnally shouting "Gainst who". Its also traditional to finish the song well before the band finishes the tune

Thanks for that, Matt. She sounds a dead ringer to Jeannie Redpath to my ears.
