lyrics

The Bothy Lads

For they’re awfy lads the bothy lads
Gin they get what they’re seekin
They’ll pack a kist an they’ll gang an enlist
An’ leave the lassies greetin

When a wis noo but sweet sixteen
Wi’ beauty just in bloomin
Little little did I ken
At nineteen I’d be greetin

For the plooboy lads are gey braw lads
But they’re fause an deceiving
For they’ll tak a’ an they’ll gang awa
An leave the lassie’s greetin

If I had kent what I dae ken
An ta’en my mither’s bidden
Ah winna be sittin by oor fireside
Cryin hushaby my bairnie

Hushaba for I’m yer ma
The lord kens wha’s yer daddy
I’ll tak guid care an I’ll be aware
O the young lads in the gloaming

When a wis noo but sweet sixteen
Wi’ beauty just in bloomin
Little little did I ken
At nineteen I’d be greetin
