about

'Fair Maid' is a song to celebrate St Johnstone FC reaching their first ever Scottish Cup Final.
Later in the year, The Shrugs will unveil their first full-length album ('Diversions') with the help of new London record-label FOOF Records.

lyrics

It's just another normal day,
Another girlfriend gone astray.
She wanted more, she slammed the door
And threw my Saints scarf on the floor.
And she said, ''Will you, oh, will you please
Sort out your priorities?''
I agreed.. so I bought a season ticket.

I'm afraid that's just the story of my life. I guess I'm addicted.
I'll follow the Saints through the glory and the strife. Our love is unrestricted.

I'll sing it loud and true, this is my song for you,
The only girl I serenade.
For you'll be my friend until the bitter end,
Perth St. Johnstone, my fair maid.

She plays a game of hide and seek,
I only see her once a week.
Her pretty face, her natural grace,
Puts others firmly in their place.

I am obsessed. I will follow you,
From Muirton to Timbuktu.
At McDiarmid, I'll back the boys in blue.

I hear she was born in 1884. Her life is never-ending.
She had beauty and now she possesses even more,
Without overspending.

I'll sing it loud and true, this is my song for you,
The only girl I serenade.
For you'll be my friend until the bitter end,
Perth St. Johnstone, my fair maid.

Now we stand on the precipice
Of success. We're not used to this.
We will suffer with you until we die.
Will we go down in history?
For now, it's a mystery
But we'll always keep that blue flag flying high.

Through the rise and fall, we'll all stay standing tall,
And our hope will never fade.
I dream we'll go up to lift the Scottish Cup,
Perth St. Johnstone, my fair maid.

My fair maid.
