Stirling's Butterflees

Lyrics composed by John 'McGonnagabble' Henderson on the 12th of March, 2014, to Joseph E. Howard's 1909 music for the song, "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now".

Up the tap o' the toon in ma days as a loon
The auld Hich Schule wis aye guid fur me;
Aa the Maisters an' Mistresses kept ma heid doon,
Sae Ah lern'd mair nor jist A, B, C.
Bit I cud oot o' class aye fin time mak a pass
At aa lassies fa catchit ma ee;
'Tho fur Ah wis an imp, an' as wee as a shrimp,
Twis a richt waist o' ilk-play-time fur me !

Ah wonner fa's oglin' them noo,
Like gif they're 'birds' in a zoo?
Anse dae they aye flaff like butterflees,
Hoverin', ull at ease?
I bet tho' thit they're raley pleesed,
E'en ackin' as slichtly surpreesed.
Shair gif they linger baul laddies tae tease,
They'll dootless think daffin's a wheeze !
