to the chorus from Scott Joplin's tune for the song, 'When Your hair Is Like The Snow'.

Ma napper's gaen beld;
Fit hair I hiv is fite;
Tho' oan naebody wull I pit the wite;
Bit fur clippin I maun pey aye the same price onywye;
It's richt scicie an a scunner whilk fair drives me gyte, och ay !

Tae pu oan ow'r ma heid
I've thochts tae buy a wig;
Fur sich as thon wid shairly mak me trig !
Bit gif it wis tae blaa aff, it micht pit me in a flaff
Muckle mair nor fan I toom ma pooch wye ow'r the odds by half !
