Listen to Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation

Sign in or sign up to favourite this tune.


Author: Robert Burns The "rogues" concerned are the members of the Scottish parliament who signed the Act of Union with England in 1707. A very powerful song, but hardly suitable for a national anthem in my opinion. JY
