Traditional and new Scots songs for use in Scottish schools

The New Town grew in ‘62
From farms and mansions, mills and mines
And they were added to the brew for our town of Livingston
In the rolling countryside old Livingston Village, it was there
And then came houses like a tide for people coming to Livingston.

Livingston, Livingston

Busy, noisy, full of life, our town, Livingston
Lots of good people here, living in Livingston
The football club, the swimming pool, our town, Livingston
The skate park and the cinema, living in Livingston 

Livingston, Livingston

The pond is full of swans and ducks, our town, Livingston
The Centre’s full of folk and cars, living in Livingston
Beautiful our scenery, our town, Livingston
Joyful, fab, and full of fun, living in Livingston                

Livingston, Livingston

Offices and factories, schools for young folk just like us
Shops and churches, libraries, for our town Livingston
The theatre at Howden Park, our town, Livingston
Shows and concerts, dancing too, living in Livingston

Livingston, Livingston

Who helped to make this song? Bankton, Peel and Carmondean
Would you like to learn our song about our town, Livingston?
Maybe yes or maybe no, but on one thing we agree,
Here’s the finest place to grow………………living in Livingston
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIVINGSTON!
