Yir sic a bonny thing, that sees the sky

and greenery. Wi unkent fathom near

always black, maist mithers gled tae

see you gaun as the washin pile

gaes higher.


The street wains gaither roon yir girth,

wi wild sair smiles an fu owe mirth

tae see wha's first.


The canny yin gaes in wan fit first,

the next yin then daes twa.

The cheeky sod fae up the street

sends in his ain fitba.


Oh! puddle whit a playthin there,

nae even worth a shillin

Left ower fae the mornin’s rain

tae wains yir worth a million
