From Top 100 Scottish Nursery Rhymes and Songs for Children

Rhyme: Cowe the nettle early

Gin ye be for lang kail,

Cowe the nettle, stoo the nettle:

Gin ye be for lang kail,

Cowe the nettle early.

Cowe it laich, cowe it sune,

Cowe it in the month o' June;

Stoo it ere it's in the bloom,

Cowe the nettle early.

Cowe it by the old wa's,

Cowe it where the sun ne'er fa's,

Stoo it when the day daws,

Cowe the nettle early.

Auld heuk wi' no ae tooth,

Cowe the nettle, stoo the nettle;

Auld gluive wi' leather loof,

Cowe the nettle early.
