Plooboy Laddies

Doon yonder den there's a plooboy lad
Some simmer's day he'll be aa my ain

And sing laddie aye, and sing laddie o
The plooboy laddies are aa the go


I love his teeth, an I love his skin
I love the verra cairt he hurls in


In yonder toon ah could hae gotten a merchant
But aa his gear wisna worth a groat


Doon yonder den ah could hae gotten a miller
But aa his dust wad hae deen me ill


It's ilka time I gyang tae the stack
I hear his wheep gie the ither crack


I see him comin frae the toon

Wi aa his ribbons hingin roon and roon
