                                            As I gang up the Castehill
                                            The bairns are skailin frae the schule,
                                            Some look neat and some look tykes.
                                            Some on fute and some on bikes,
                                            Some are trystit by their mithers,
                                            Ithers cleekit wi their brithers,
                                            Some hae bags and some hae cases
                                            But aa hae smiles upon their faces
                                            For noo the holidays begin
                                            And lessons for a while are dune.
                                            It's nocht but fun and games aa day,
                                            Nae mair wark, but lots o play
                                            Until neist year the schule-bell caas
                                            Them back to the maister and his tawse.
