Blaw Wee Daffie Blaw

Blaw wee daffie,
blaw yer chanters
agin the win an snaw,
fit unkind haun
made ye yella
fan wi rid’s brave hert
ye gie yer best?
Blaw fan the hert
greets sair o chuave,
the wame hungert o meat
an the cruel nor-east
is fu o sleet,
blaw wee daffie blaw,
turn awa the dull coorin day,
turn awa the doom cooart jauk
ye gowden pipes a sonsie jig will blaw
an wee maun dance whaur syne ye grow,
blaw wee daffie,
blaw till we yowk yer smeddum hert
an haud it tae oor doo keeled kists,
blaw till oor lugs tingle
an oor rosie eed vision
brobs oor howpit shouders
straucht an true.
