Robert Burns

                                                Up wi, the carls o' Dysart,
                                                    And the lads o' Buckhaven,
                                                And the kimmers o' Largo,
                                                    And the lasses o' Leven. 
                                                Chorus :
                                                Hey, ca' thro', ca' thro',
                                                    For we hae mickle ado ;
                                                Hey, ca' thro', ca' thro',
                                                    For we hae mickle ado.
                                                We hae tales to tell,
                                                    And we hae sangs to sing ;
                                                We hae pennies to spend,
                                                    And we hae pints to bring.
                                                We'll live a' our days,
                                                    And them that comes behin',
                                                Let them do the like ;
                                                    And spend the gear they win.
Footnote : This Burns' song might have been inspired by the tune 'Carls o Dysart.' The song was first seen in print in Johnson's volume, and tradition has supplied another excellent verse as follows -
                                                Ne'er break your heart for love ;
                                                    Just turn the boat about ;
                                                There's as gude fish i' the sea
                                                    As ever yet cam out.
