The old Buckfast Tonic Wine, affectionately known as Bucky, is drunk widely in Lanarkshire.

Got me wondering, if they drink bucky in Lanarkshire, what do they drink in Buckie, the seaside town in Banffshire?

Ah hud mah stag in Lanarkshire —
A weekend oan the skite.
They're mental fur the bucky there.
We drank the stuff aw night.
It brought the toon o Buckie,
Up in Banffshire, tae ma thoughts.
A woner whit they drink up there:
They must be mad for Shotts.
