Johnny Lad by Unknown

I bought a wife in Edinburgh for a bawbee.
I got a farthing back again tae buy tobacco wi'.

And wi' you and wi' you and wi' 'you Johnny Lad.
I'll dance the buckles off my shoon
Wi' you, my Johnny Lad.

As I was walking early I chanced to see the Queen,
She was playing at the fitba' wi' the lads in Glasgow Green.


The captain o' the ither side was scoring wi' great style,
So the Queen she cried a polisman and she clapped him in the jyle.


Noo Samson was a michty man. He focht wl' cuddies' jaws
And he won a score o' battles wearing crimson flannel drawers.


There was a man o' Nineveh and he was wondrous wise.
He louped intae a bramble bush and scratched oot baith his eyes.


And when he saw his eyes wis oot he wis gey troubled then
So he louped intae anither bush and scratched them in again.


Noo Johnny is a bonny lad, he is a lad o' mine.
I've never had a better lad and I've had twenty-nine.
