    All I can say is that because I kept singing this song over and over in my head while watching the 19070 Scottish Cup Final between Aberdeen and Celtic at Hampden, I knew that Aberdeen would win. And they did, 3-1. I kept that song going all through the game, and even though I am not an Aberdonian I helped them win the game. In fact, they have me to thank for winning the Cup. My pal, Leonard, was there too and he will corroborate this. What the song means is another matter, it's actually a bit daft, montelimar ad coconut fudge and all that jazz.
