Jist mash some tatties in a
an’ mix in butter, flour, an’ saut;
roll oot the dough an’ cut in sections,
Fire up yer griddle, guid an’ hot,
ye should be fine wi’ thon directions.
Wee bit savoury tattie scone
lies saft an’ tender in my haun’,
an’ it’s sae warm, my fingers flutter.
Across yon griddle, hosts are struan:
Pass me ower a daud o’ butter.
Three-cornered scone, yer
tempts my lips while my fingers drape
doon yer wings o’ broon-black dapple.
Bit soon that tasty tattie crepe
will disappear richt doon my thrapple!
Tattie scones an’ a cup o’
prized by The Queen, yersel’, an’ me.
Or fry up twa tae break yer fast,
wi’ bacon an’ eggs, ye’ll agree
tattie scones are a great repast.
The best o’ tatties cam frae
where Rabbie wrote o’ Scotland fair
an’ ca’d us a’, a pudden race,
Haggis micht rule bit, hae a care,
the tattie scone could tak’ its place!
