The Biter Bit


Wirdies screeved bi John Henderson oan the 3rd o' June, 2011,
to Josef Meissler's main melody in his 1870s waltz called '
Dream Faces'.

Scots' sangs fae Norlans, wi thur canty tunes,
An doric wirdies, screev'd fur quines an loons;
Thase 'teuk the biscuit', as maist fowks did gree
Tho' fyow fae England, fa said,
"Dearie-me .....
....what a strange language, and such clumsy tunes;
Like many wild wolves howling to their moons;
They must learn English, read and write no Scots;
Our MPs actions will brain-wash their tots."

Sae cam it efter, ilka lad an lass
Wis edicated, in King's Speech 'en masse';
Sae mony-leidit, faar the Scots hiv geen
Tae kwintries wirld-ow'r, they hae caa'd the teen !
