Bothy Ballad

Oh the whisky gaedroun' Tammy flein' the doo'

And aye as they drank, the mair they got fou'

The only anes sober, the calf an' the coo

At the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

Tammy roared oot "Ring the bell noo for mair"

Synetuggit the coo's tail, and pu'doot a hair;

When she kickitoot he gaed up in the air

At the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

Noo when I want taw lauchin' I think on the scene

When a'bodyroub' aboot cam; ower tae clean,

And clairtedthemsel'sricht up taw the e'en

At the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

Wi Robbie the Rochie and Willie the Doo,

The auld wife hersel' an' Teeny McCrew;

And a'body else the left aff the pleugh

For the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

Oh! Siccan a sotter was a'body in,

Five mile awa' ye could hear the din;

Even the vera coo had to grin

At the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

Noo the bobby cam' roun' tae quell doon the soun'

The cratur got lost whaur the rucks hae their foun'

He feel in the midden and was like taw droon

At the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

The weicht o' him syne sent the barrow in bits,

The wheel cairred on and the auld wife it hits;

Losh! ye should hae seen how she did the splits

At the muckin' o' Geordie's byre.

Waulking Song

  • Waulking song – A rhythmic song sung in Gaelic by the women in the Western Isles of Scotland while they ‘waulked’ the woollen cloth to soften and shrink it. Sometimes the singing is led by a soloist with a response from the rest of the women.
  • Usually individual lines and then a sung line by everyone, for example:
      • Jock - Hello, my name is Jock
      • Everyone - Yes yes hello Jock
      • Jock - I like learning
      • Everyone - Yes yes hello Jock
