Fowks Fa Wirk'd Aa Oors Aroon The Clock


Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 17th of April, 2010,
to Richard Milburn's 1856 music for the song, 'Listen To The Mocking Bird'.



I've veesions noo o' yon kirkton -
O' St Cyrus, an its schulehoose;
I've veesions tee o' its bairnies,
An the auld schule nar the scaars abeen the bay.

Picturs o' the rowlin sea;
Stang-nets o' the reidfish tee;
Cauld gowden sans faar netters yark ilk morn.
Sweeshin o the winswyp'd sprots;
Sherp-scries o' the guillemots,
Fyle slawly comes fant glimmers o' the dawn.



Sae freenly aye wis yon kirkton,
Like a fem'ly, ivver tentin
Fur aa fowks as is expeckit
Fae douce chiels fa wirk aa oors aroon the clock.

Picturs o' the rowlin sea;
Stang-nets o' the reidfish tee;
Cauld gowden sans faar netters yark ilk morn.
Sweeshin o the winswyp'd sprots;
Sherp-scries o' the guillemots,
Fyle slawly comes fant glimmers o' the dawn.
