Nae yin luvs mince-an-tatties
Jist as hauf as dis auld me.
Ah gobble em aa tae ma denner
An Ah howks them doon tae tea.
Ah dowse yon ow'r wi broon sass
An kirn meat up sae guid an true,
Syne mashin tatties up as weel
'fore graipin aa int moo. ....
Maist liked pud is steamy dumplin
Wi custard gye weel droon'd.
Suet in the makin wi
Sultanas bi the poond.
A platter o graun muckle teep
Whaur helpin's aa tumml'd oot,
Fore speen an graip alloos the gluffin
Wi'oot syne ony doot.....
Ah maun hiv guid meat an veg
Fur hale an fere tae be,
Goys me weel thit sich lik dunts
Be aeten bi thee an me tee.
Sae sterters an some in-atweens
Wi spiles o aa the-guid-airth maks sproot,
The likes o peas, an beans, an greens,
Nae foryetin halesome fruit.
Syne waashed weel doon ma thrapple
Wi lang infusit cuppies o tea!
