Wedding Waltz' composed by Angus Fitchet.
Fan the maumie melody o' this waltz comes dreeftin throw the
The dincers aa fair tentily sweel doucely roon the flair;
It's a weel kent teenie o' Angus's, the fiddler o' Dundee;
A mannie sae mony hiv loo'd tae hear syne they wur wee.
Ay the glamour fiddle-in fae his bow cast spells faar e'er he
Bit nane mair nor his waltzes wull ne'er fae Scots' mem'ries
Sae luft up yer tummlers an toast this loon, "Baach Angus, nane
match'd ye .....
A graun fiddler whase meesic we'll wint tae hear oontil we dee."
