*************************************
Och ay,

Ye micht weel-lik me tae ca ye Bonnie Quinie
A'm shair aye howpin thit a'm a-pleasin ye

Wi yer sae clivver-lik blethers an yer umman stare
An yer grunny spik an waavy waak an linthy hair
Wi yer seely leuks thit mak life wirthfyle

Bit noo a'm jist yer uncle, brither, da an auld graunfaither tae
