                                Tell's doctor, div fowk suffer frae weet-rot
                                And roost? I speir for, on the trot,
                                it's been stottin doon wi' oot deval
                                day aftir day. And in this caul
                                and weet my jints ging aa tae pot.
                                Some spring! Fit hope o simmer? Nae wonder
                                the sun's feart noo up yonder
                                tae show its face. Black afrontit it maun
                                be - gress ower weet tae cut, and fan
                                wi my rheumatics will I be able? Ye foonder
                                chancing oot the door; micht weel!
                                get swep awa, haein tae soom like a feel
                                doon the street, the toon in spate.
                                (Micht meet in wi' the wifie wi the skate,
                                the lum-hat and the gate yon Rorie chiel!
                                telt'ss o). Jist aathing's weet and foosty
                                and aa my movin pairts grow roosty!
