375. Songâ€”The Deuks dang oâ€™er my Daddie by Robert Burns
THE BAIRNS gat out wiâ€™ an unco shout,
The deuks dang oâ€™er my daddie, O!
The fien-ma-care, quoâ€™ the feirrie auld wife,
He was but a paidlinâ€™ body, O!
He paidles out, and he paidles in,
Anâ€™ he paidles late and early, O!
This seven lang years I hae lien by his side,
Anâ€™ he is but a fusionless carlie, O.
O haud your tongue, my feirrie auld wife,
O haud your tongue, now Nansie, O:
Iâ€™ve seen the day, and sae hae ye,
Ye wad na ben sae donsie, O.
Iâ€™ve seen the day ye butterâ€™d my brose,
And cuddlâ€™d me late and early, O;
But downa-doâ€™s come oâ€™er me now,
And oh, I find it sairly, O!
