Hi! While I'm studying Scottish Gaelic right now and listening to lots of that music, I'm trying to find two OLD tunes sung by an "Andy Stewart." The songs are in English, although sung with a VERY heavy Scottish accent. The two songs are:
Nae Sae Bad
That's the Reason Noo I Wear the Kilt
Anyone know of these tunes or can point me where I could find them?
Several of the gentlemen's albums are still available on CD, but none have either of these two songs on them!

Contact that person to try and get hold of that LP :)
As for the lyrics...it's a different song. All I remember is some word of the chorus:
Nae sae bad, that's what they say,
Nae sae bad, every day,
It's never not so good it's not so bad....
It won't cause a great sensation but sums up the situation
For no matter what it is, it's nae sae bad!
