The McCalmans

I've travelled round this country from shore tae shinin shore,
Frae the swamps o' Auchterderran tae the jungles o' Lochore,
But in all these far-flung places there's nane that can compare,
Wi' the 'Lily of Lumphinnans', she's ma bonnie Maggie Blair.
Frae the pyramids up in Kelty tae the mansions in Glencraig,
We've trod the bings together in mony's a blythe stravaig;
Watched the moonlight over Crosshill, trod Buckhaven's golden sand,
An mony's the happy hour we've spent in Lochgelly's Happy Land.

CHORUS
Oh she's just a Kelty clippie, she'll no tak nae advice;
It's, 'Ach drap deid or I'll bile yer heid, or I'll punch yer ticket twice';
Her faither's just a waster, her mither's on the game;
She's just a Kelty clippie but I love her just the same.

Noo I remember on the 8.15, that night o' romantic bliss;
I says, 'Hey Mag, nip aff yer fag, an gie's a wee bit kiss.'
No she didnae tak that kindly, no she didnae like ma chaff;
And bein a contrary kind of lass, she said, 'Come oan, git aff'.

CHORUS
Oh she's just a Kelty clippie, she'll no tak nae advice;
It's, 'Ach drap deid or I'll bile yer heid, or I'll punch yer ticket twice';
Her faither's just a waster, her mither's on the game;
She's just a Kelty clippie but I love her just the same.

Noo she hisnae got nae culture, she drives me roon the bend,
She sits through the night in an old armchair reading the People's Friend;
Her lapels is aa fu o badges frae Butlins doon at Ayr,
And she gangs tae the bingo ev'ry night wi her curlers still in her hair.

CHORUS
Oh she's just a Kelty clippie, she'll no tak nae advice;
It's, 'Ach drap deid or I'll bile yer heid, or I'll punch yer ticket twice';
Her faither's just a waster, her mither's on the game;
She's just a Kelty clippie but I love her just the same.

But things is a wee bit better noo, I've goan an got the ring;
Ah wan it frae John at the pitch an toss, last nicht oan the Lindsay Bing;
Wi her wee black hat an her ticket-machine, she did ma heart ensnare;
She's the 'Lily of Lumphinnans', she's ma bonnie Maggie Blair.

CHORUS
Oh she's just a Kelty clippie, she'll no tak nae advice;
It's, 'Ach drap deid or I'll bile yer heid, or I'll punch yer ticket twice';
Her faither's just a waster, her mither's oan the game;
She's just a Kelty clippie but I love her just the same.
Oh she's just a Kelty clippie, she'll no tak nae advice;
It's, 'Ach drap deid or I'll bile yer heid, or I'll punch yer ticket twice';
Her faither's just a waster, her mither's oan the game;
She's just a Kelty clippie but I love her just the same.
