Katie Bairdie lends itself easily to making new verses with a class. 

The three recordings above are different new versions by three primary schools in the Howe of the Mearns, and below is another set of Howe of the Mearns ideas.


New verses by Laurencekirk P5/6 with Ewan McVicar 


Katie Bairdie had a horse, it could haul wi muckle force
Wasny that a dainty horse? Dance Katie Bairdie
 
Katie Bairdie had a pig, always wore a tartan wig
Wasny that a dainty pig? Dance Katie Bairdie
 
Katie Bairdie had a cow, it used to plough, it doesn?t now
 
Katie Bairdie had a sheep, always juggled wi the neeps
 
Katie Bairdie had a chicken ? watch your pockets, it?s always nickin
 
Katie Bairdie had a hen, it could count right up to ten
 
Katie Bairdie had a goat, always wore a Gucci coat
 
Katie Bairdie had a cat, it ran away with Postman Pat
 
Katie Bairdie had a dog, it flushed itself right down the bog
