Doon yonder den there's a plooman lad
An' some simmer's day he'll be a' my ain.
Chorus :
An' sing laddie o, an' sing laddie aye,
The plooman laddies are a' the go.
I love his teeth an' I love his skin -
I love the verra cairt he hurls in.
Doon yonder den I coulda gotten a merchant,
Bit a' his stuff wisna worth a groat.
Doon yonder den I coulda gotten a miller,
Bit the smell o' dust widda deen me ill.
It's ilka time I gyang tae the stack
I hear his wheep gie the ither crack.
I see him comin' fae yonder toon,
Wi' a' his ribbons hingin' roon an' roon.
An' noo she's gotten her plooman lad,
As bare as ever he left the ploo.
Footnote : A song which continues in popularity long after the day of horse and plough. Ploughman thought themselves, and rightly so, no sma drink, and of course the Horseman's Word gave them control over not just horses but women! Remember Robert Burns was a plooman.
