Feenally Lowsed


Lyrics composed by John Henderson on the 14th of June, 2011
to the music Flanagan and Allen used for their song, '
Wandering'.

Fan feen'ly lows'd Tam seen wonner'd,
Fit he wud dae oan sinny morns ?
Fit aboot gowf ... yon micht be gran ?
An shair lang wauks wudna dae him nae harm;
Bit,
He tee hud noshuns o' gaan fishin,
Tho' nae fan sinsheen kep troot douce;
Syne there wis nae dootin, gowf ba's fit he'd be clootin,
An makin 'birdies' aft tae boot !

Fan feen'ly lows'd Tam tee wonner'd,
Fit he micht dae oan reyny morns ?
He cud read beuks .... oan his PC ?
An shair his harns wud be sherper ye'd gree;
Bit,
He aye hud noshuns o' gaan fishin,
An kent dreich weet days wur jist gran;
Syne wi'oot time waistin, the burn he'd seen be caistin,
An lanin braw troots verra faist !
