The armies came 800 years ago
Give or take a 100 years or so
They thought that they could take the crown
They thought that they could keep us down
Because they had the stone of scone

Return the stone of kings
Return the stone of destiny
Return the stone of kings
Return the stone (return the stone of destiny)

Some say it came from the holy land
And carried all the way by holy hands
Saint Patrick laid a curse
And said some holy verse
And crowned an ancient king upon the stone

The armies came 800 years ago
Give or take a 100 years or so
We finally got them on the track
When we got the boulder back
Yeah I said we got the throne of scone
