                                        Strippit ba's is hard tae bate,
                                        Strippit ba's is really dandy,
                                        Strippit ba's is simply great,
                                        Better nor yir common candy.
 
                                        Candacraig and Kandahar,
                                        Fillabeg and fillmacannie!
                                        Mind and bring yir jellie jar,
                                        Ye can gie it tae the mannie.
 
                                        Chocolate bars will melt awa,
                                        Like the snowflakes i' the river.
                                        Jericho will surely fa:
                                        Strippit ba's gie lastin pleasure.
 
                                        Tweeduldum and Tweedledee,
                                        Tap of Noth and tapsalteerie!
                                        Fan aa ither comforts flee,
                                        Strippit ba's will keep ye cheery.
 
                                        Bless, o Lord, wir daily maet
                                        (Bless fat we've already eaten)
                                        Lord, I ken ye'll nae forget:
                                        Strippit ba's can ne'er be beaten.
 
                                        Babylon is blawn awa,
                                        Egypt's host is sairly drookit!
                                        Ither sweeties ye can chaw,
                                        Strippit ba's maun aye be sookit.
 
                                        London brig is tummel't doon,
                                        Glesca's coupit i' the river.
                                        Embro's shoogly i' the foun:
                                        Strippit ba's will last for evir.
