Snoozin' an' Dreamin'


Lyrics composed by 'auld' John Henderson on the 15th September, 2009
to Van Alstyne, Schmidt and Curtis' 1925 music for the song 'Drifting and Dreaming'.



Och I am ...
Myn-din' ma youth-heid
As auld fowks dae;
Mon-y a freen geen,
Sich maks me wae.
Bit syne I re-caa,
Tho' I maun murn,
They fesh graun mem'ries
O' aa thon fun.

Ma pins are stoon-din';
Guid lichts I've nae;
Jist lik this in-gine,
I fecht ilk brae;
Sae in ma airm-cheer,
Eas-dom I fin;
Snoo-zin' an dream-in',
Fyle ithers rin.
