The Deuks dang o'er my Daddie

written in 1792

The bairns gat out wi' an unco shout, The deuks dang o'er my daddie, O, The fien-ma-care, quo' the feirrie auld wife, He was but a paidlin body, O. He paidles out, an' he paidles in, An' he paidles late and early, O; This seven lang year I hae lien by his side, An he is but a fusionless carlie, O. O had your tongue, my feirrie auld wife, O had your tongue, now Nansie, O: I've seen the day, and sae hae ye, Ye wad na ben sae donsie, O. I've seen the day ye butter'd my brose, And cuddl'd me late and early, O; But downa do's come o'er me now, And, Oh, I find it sairly, O!
